This basket has had professional restoration - as seen in the last close-up of the end of the basket, there was a missing piece to rim about the size and shape of 1/2 of a quarter dollar. The damage included the top two coils and three additional coils and was approximately 1 1/4" wide at the rim to 1/2" wide at the 5th coil. The restoration is excellent, but under strong light and attention, is easily seen. This basket shows very well, and the damage is not a significant visual issue. Undamaged, this basket would be valued between $6000-7000. Considering the damage, we will offer this item at 30% of value. Please contact us for more information. More photos on file and available upon request.
The Panamint Indians inhabited the Eastern base of the Sierra Nevada and Coso mountains, Panamint Valley and East Nevada. They resided to the northeast of what is now Bakersfield, California.
