Physical description

Small, decorated, straight-sided basket with circular base. Red, green, and pink silk-like thread is interlaced with the tight grass weave to create bands of zigzag that encircle the sides, with two areas of square designs in the middle. The base is a loose eye-hole weave around a tightly woven centre.
