4395P - 1956.001.

Coiled basket. Base is single rod slat foundation. Sides are rod - bundle foundation. Design accomplished by a flat, dyed element woven in and out of the coils so that first a coil passes over it, then under it. British Columbia Salish tribes use this rod base although this basket probably doesn't belong there. At any rate it is Plateau or Northwest Coast.
