    I'm interested in collecting Alaskan baskets & baskets of other Indian tribes.I also have a good collection of ivory, whalebone carvings etc & some masks by the Inuits. It's like orchids--you can become addicted!

    Interesting.

    You ever watch King of the Hill? Dale the exterminator is into baskets. I just saw that episode last night.

    Interesting collection! I too would like to see pics of them

    I have a few odd collections. I have always been into collecting. Started with collecting stamps as a child.

    One of my favorite collections is animal covered dishes. I went to an auction one time and picked up a dove on a nest, covered dish. It was made out of amethyst slag glass. I then was at an antique fair and came across a lion covered dish again in amethyst slag glass and purchased it. Well more than one is a start of a collection. I now have cows, duck, lion, turtle, horse, swan and others. All is the purple slag glass.

    Do you have any Mastadon? heeheeee... I know a man that found an entire complete ivory tusk.. it not for sale at any price--and would in fact be illegal for HIM to sell. Some things have to be signed by a native--like Mammoth or Mastadon ivory, whale baleens...and they are illegal to ship out of the state.. I'm not sure if a native can take it out or not... but a definate no-no for non-natives.
