Basket bowl, small. Miwok Tribe "Mush server. Coiled with design in bracken fern. Good condition."(Reggiardo,8/78) "Northern Miwok, probably from Ione. Sedge root and bracken fern, stained from much use with water. Distinctive Ione Miwok style. I think that this is one of four baskets (including 16.405, 16.376, 16.385) representative of a specific type of Miwok basket used as a drinking cup or personal acorn soup basket used for drinking thin acorn soup."(C. Bates, 8/91) "Coiled basket for eating mush; sedge root and design in dyed roots of bracken fern." (gray notebook) See Craig Bates correspondence, 8/12/91. (Documentation project files).
