D E Brown's Lidded Yurok Basket
D. E. Brown, where are you? This is your basket! Actually it is a good basket for anyone. It is well woven in bear grass with maiden hair fern designs and letters and a knob on the lid. Baskets like this one with names or letters are visually interesting and stand out among other more traditional baskets. They also cause you to contemplate who, in this case D. E. Brown was and why he/she wanted their name on the basket. I personally like these personalized baskets. A collection of these or even a shelf dominated by baskets with names, letters or dates would make quite a statement.
