This black ash basket with antlers was handcrafted in Nedrow, New York by husband and wife duo, Ronni-Leigh Goeman and Stonehorse Goeman in 2004. The base of the basket is narrow at 3 1/2" in diameter and is woven from sweet grass. The lid has a 2" band of braided woven sweetgrass at the rim, a 2 1/2" band of curly black ash on top of the lid, a 3/4" band of flat woven black ash, then a flat band of woven sweet grass. Total diameters are 9 1/2" by 14". It is created and detailed with black ash tree, braided sweetgrass and tufted horse hair on the top accompanied by a carved deer antler stand (MSU Museum).
