Antique Navajo ceremonial basket


Most commonly called a “wedding” basket, this is an old Navajo ceremonial basket, with a silver concho.   Sumac or willow rods with yucca.  The surface is lovely with an old polish from handling and use, and some deposits from ceremonial use.  The large button in the center is attached to a piece of hide that passes through to the back of the basket for hanging.  The button is silver with blue glass.  The basket measures 18 1/4″ in diameter.  It is in excellent old condition.
