Source Caption: The Emporium Company (c.1917) in Carson City, NV, owned by Abe & Amy Cohn featured the basket weaving of Datsolalee. The Cohns saved the very best baskets for their private collection and the remaining baskets were sold at the store, some fetching thousands of dollars. Some of these masterpieces may be found at http://genequintanafineart.com/datsolalee.asp while others are located in private collections and museums.
