JICARILLA.-Basketry of this tribe of Indians is very orna- mental and can be used in numbers of ways, from the small work- basket to the strong scrap-basket for office use. The colors are brilliant reds, greens and purples and are typically Indian. Prices for scrap-baskets according to height, from $5 to $25. Baskets, suitable for work or scrap-baskets, from $2.50 to $5. HOPI BASKETRY (Commonly termed Moqui) This interesting tribe of Indians make their home in the northern part of Arizona, on the Mesas or Buttes that rise abruptly from the arid deserts. Their basketry is noted for its brilliancy of coloring and symbolism. Their ceremonial baskets make fine ornaments for Indian corners and are much sought after. Of the two tribes the Mishongonovi is the more attractive, and prices consequently rule higher. These placques range in price from $2.50 to $4 each, accord- ing to design, coloring and size. Oraibe placques, or ceremonial baskets, are equally interesting and contain a variety of designs. The Katchina being particularly in- teresting. We have a variety of these placques from $3 to $6. The accompanying illustration gives an idea of some of these de- signs. These tribes make some baskets which are very much sought after, and we have a few in stock at prices ranging from $2 to $10. A CALIFORNIA GROUP CALIFORNIA BASKETS POMO.-Of the California baskets that of the Pomo is the most interesting, and to the collector the most valuable. We have a fine line of these baskets from $5 to $250. The noted feathered baskets of the Lake County Pomos can be seen here in variety. TULARES OR YOKUT.-No basket collection is complete with out one or more Tulares.
