The basket is woven with cherry bark (?) and different types of grasses including sea, chi’tapt (sharp or swamp), or toq-toq (three-corner). The basket was woven using a wrapped twining technique. The sides features a geometric wave pattern in a light brown grass (?), situated between two banded rows. Each band has one light brown row, followed by two green rows, followed by another light brown row. The lid has two rows of light brown grass around the center.
Center handle on lid is missing.
The grasses are coloured with synthetic aniline dye. The base has two sets concentric black circles and each circle is composed of three rows.
The basket was likely created by a Nuu-chah-nulth (Nootka) or Makah maker.
