This beautiful lunch basket was made by Jeannie Dominick for her niece. It is remarkable in that the beaded designs are on 5 of the basket's 6 surfaces. Only the narrow face opposite the basket's handle is undecorated, suggesting that Jeannie intended for the basket to sit upright like a suitcase with the handle facing upward.
Only two other baskets this type have been documented, where decorated surfaces are extended to what would normally be considered the basket's base. See also MCR 0983 11 1 and MCR 0983 10
