Likely Amazonian River basin, included here are three large baskets of a similar style, all in fine condition given their age (some unraveling is evident in places) with the largest measuring approximately 15 1/4" in diameter and 11 1/4" high and the smallest, 5 1/2" in diameter and 5 1/4" high. Also included are two bags, one basket woven and the other of mesh (in the bottom of this bag is a small set of charms presumably intended to be attached to the bag itself). These are both in fine condition. The larger of the two (the woven piece) measures approximately 11" square. From the collection of a world traveler of 45+ years who has circumnavigated the globe via sailboat. Keywords: basketry, weaving, mesh, handbag, tote, vintage
