| ||Apple Basket|
Maine State Museum, Artifact
Round basket with basal platform, bottom is in two layers of double standards. Each layer has two thicknesses of standards (i.e. 4 thicknesses of standards but treated as two). Standards become thicker farther from center of basket. Weavers start at the center of basket and continue throughout. They are 1/8" thick. Where the basket would normally turn upwards, the double thickness standards are split, the top level continuing normally upwards, the bottom level is turned down, woven for 1-3/4" to form base. Some evidence of blue dye between weavers and standards.
