Myron Eells Northwest Collection
Maxey Catalog Number
Water-tight basket, oval at rim, tall and narrow with a very dense and heavy weave. This basket has leather thongs and cotton string tied around the rim. Eells noted that they were: "made from cedar roots and grass, woven and sewed together, and very stiff... all the Sound tribes give them the same name, spa-tco, or spu-tco..."(p.80) Eells went on to describe that they were used for water, berries, and were sometimes used for cooking with hot stones.
