Antique Native American Basket Folk Art Hand Made Coiled Pine Needle Bowl 5”X4.5 - This little oval basket/bowl is in excellent condition. It came from an estate in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the 1970s. It is made of bunches of pine needles sewn together with heavy black twine or cord. It measures approx. 5” long, 4.5” wide and 1.5” high. The lady who owned it told it was made by Native Americans, but I don’t remember the tribe. She also collected other Native American artifacts like a huge Navajo blanket that I also have. I just put the basket on a shelf with all my other baskets, so it wouldn’t get damaged. I have taken close up pics of any areas of concern. There is only one place where the twine is broken and the rest looks pretty great.
