Basket cup, small. Miwok Tribe "Mush server. Coiled, three horizontal rows of design in redbud. Good - very good condition."(Reggiardo,11/78) "Northern Miwok, possibly Ione. Three-rod, coiled in sedge with bracken fern root pattern. Distinctively Ione Miwok style. I think that is one of four baskets (including 16.405, 16.376, 16.385) representative of a specific type of Miwok baset used as a drinking cup or personal acorn soup basket used for drinking thin acorn soup."(C. Bates, 8/91) See Craig Bates correspondence, 8/11/91 (Documentation project files).
