*Antique handmade African lidded basket. Possibly Algeria, Tunisia. I'm told this is rib-stitched. Measures about 9 1/2" across the bottom, 10" across the top opening, about 4" deep and about 7" tall with the lid on. I do see a few small areas where the outer weaving has come off but it's in overall very nice condition.

*Bottom is entirely covered in some type of animal skin that has been stitched on. There is also "skin" stitched around the top rim of the basket and around the lid rim. I've never seen one like this before.

*Coloring is excellent although the outside of the lid has a little fading. Inside colors are bright.

*I'm trying to research this more and will add information as it becomes available. Thanks for looking!

*PLEASE NOTE: On occasion you may be overcharged for shipping. If this happens, any amount over $2.00 USD will be refunded to your account. Thanks!
