Here we have a superb example of the outstanding tribal art of Africa! Even a simple every day object such as a humble pot cover is ART of the highest order. From Nigeria ( Hausa basket) c1900-1920 is my guess. In fantastic condition. The colors are muted but have retained their vibrancy. Absolutely no damage whatsoever. The hours and hours this took to create is staggering! Each tiny rim loop alone must have taken some time not to mention superior eye sight. I counted 39 rows of tight coils! The design of the animals in conjunction with the multi-colored geometric shapes is simply fabulous! A breathtakingly beautiful Antique African basket. See Bryan p 87. 12" (30.2 cm) FREE SHIPPING
