I have purchased a group of African hand made basket. The estate sale that these pieces came from was from a woman and her husband that lived in Africa from the 50’s-70’s. These baskets are from that era. They all seem to be in nice condition with no damage. I am going to put all of the listings in with changing only the title. I will note if there is any damage or not. Most are what I would consider very close to mint. This particular basket is very large and has a lid.These are all from the Zulu tribe, from what I have been told and are all, completely handmade. The coloring on these pieces are fairly muted….only beige, brown and a very dark brown to black. Some are prettier or more designed on the inside than the outside. I work for an auction house/Antique shop with certified apprasiers (for 5 years, they have been in business for over 50). If you have questions, please ask. If I don’t know, I will to get an answer for you.

This particular basket is somewhat dirty. I can see that it is not bright and clean, but do not want to change the original patina or damage the item. This piece is 50" around and 16" tall to the handle on the top of the lid.
