A coiled sweetgrass basket made by Mary A. Jackson. The basket has a wide and shallow circular body with a tall central handle. The handle is composed of three coils that split to form four coils at each end sewn into the top of the basket at four points. The bottom of the basket is flat with sides that curve sharply at the outer edge to create the wide, shallow body. The basket is composed mostly of lighter-colored grasses, with a narrow band of darker pine needles around the wide top and another narrow band of pine needles around the narrow bottom center.
