Description

Annie Poole McBride, a master Paiute basket maker, lived around Bishop, California. This finely coiled basket is identified as her creation by the six-pointed star often used on her baskets. Many Paiute basket makers entered their works in competition at local fairs, which not only gained fame and financial reward for the winning artists but also stimulated ever-increasing quality of workmanship and complexity of design.
