I purchased these awesome hand-made baskets at the Abenaki reservation in Odanak, Quebec in July 2005 from Marguerite Panadis, who is liquidating her store as a result of an illness that set in around 2000. The baskets are made using sweetgrass and ash splint weaved into beautiful patterns. Measurements below reflect the size of the actual basket, not the outer decorations (i.e., small handles, exterior curls or points).
This basket is a very nice piece. It has a darker coloring with a nice pattern on the bottom and inside the lid.
