This basket closely resembles PC LA1 (see photos below) and its identification as a bullet basket is on that basis. The fact that this basket is slightly smaller than PC LA1, and the variation in its lid fastening system, cast some doubt on this identification, however.
A small, rectangular slat coiled basket with lid, wool hinges and a plastic button fastener. Basket walls are 4 slats high topped with a single bundle coil. An inset slat forms the mouth of the basket over which the lid fits. The bottom slat is edged by false braid.
