Description

Medium-sized, rectangular basket, possibly of the "stiff" variety described by Eells. The opening is rectangular and narrows to a smaller rectangle at the bottom. It is tightly woven of cedar roots and grass (?). Stripes of dark reddish and blonde color (giving a checkered appearance) are woven around basket vertically from top to bottom. Small pieces are missing from the rim, but the basket is otherwise in good shape. Post-Contact.
