Whether for gathering, carrying or storing, the forms of most baskets announce their function. This lidded basket would have been ideal for the tourist trade - small, easily transportable, and the perfect container for trinkets. It’s made by the technique of coiling, with bundles of grasses used as the foundation for the coils.
