A flat-based, straight-sided basket with flush, almost flat lid which fits securely over straight rim. Basket is formed on a lattice of cedar root or bark which is frayed out to form vertical ribs, and then a delicate tight bird-cage with twining technique is used to build up the basket. Pattern of deep purple, almost black, ducks spaced around basket above two parallel lines in burgundy. Top of basket lid is decorated with a "whirlpool” design radiating from a red eye in red, yellow, and green, terminating in a red ring which notches into the natural light lid; green and white alternating stitches at the ring connecting top to wall of basket lid.
