Commentary
The ginger jar shape and knobbed lid of this basket were common in Eskimo basketry. Originally, Eskimo coiled baskets were started by sewing coils to a skin or to a twined center; later the bottom of the baskets were coiled. The design motifs of this example reveal an Athabascan influence.
