A coiled sweetgrass basket made by Mary A. Jackson. The short, open basket has a flat oval bottom and a handle. The large central handle is made up of the top three wales of the basket that curve upward from the lip and are sewn together across the top to form the handle. The basket is composed entirely of lighter-colored grasses that contrast only slightly with the palmetto wrappings.
