Description"This Hoopa basket has a narrow, tapered base on which a rounding bowl is woven. It is 11 inches in diameter and 7 inches high. It was made by Mrs. Reeves, another fine Hoopa basket weaver, who used willow root as a base, weaving into it grass, manzanita and maiden hair fern as trim. Mrs. Reeves was a middle-aged Indian, very busy raising a family. She did not make tightly woven baskets because she was so busy. In fact, she always said that her baskets were not good baskets because they were too "lacy". "
The design is not visible from the inside of the basket. The design is simple stripes with a few triangles at regular intervals. There are 12 rows of 8 stitches per inch.
