Myron Eells Northwest Collection
Maxey Catalog Number
Large, "water tight" basket, called "spa-tco or spu-tco by the Sound Indians. Woven of cedar roots and grass and sewn so that it is very dense and stiff. Eells described these baskets as having been used for carrying water or other food, and for storing dried foods such as fish or potatoes. This one has ornamentation of light and dark colored grass sewn over the weave of the basket, but is worn off to the point that it is difficult to make out the design. Damage at rim; looped handles of twine and leather. Post-Contact.
