Native American Winnebago/Ho-chunk hand carved & woven ash splint basket with loop handle. The rim of the basket is captured by two carved and bent ash splines with 1/4" lashing capturing the vertical splines. The splines have been bent to create a flat bottom, and the loop handle has been notch carved and bent. The side lashings are 1/4" to the bottom of the sides where a 1" wide spline defines the base. From traces on the interior lashings we can see that the middle bands were dyed but are now faded. 

Native American, Winnebago/Ho-Chunk, circa 1880-1910.
