The three-rod Washoe covered degikup with lid is approximately 8” high and 10“ in diameter, with designs in redbud and bracken fern on a willow ground, was made by Louisa Keyser, also known as Dat-So-La-Lee. This basket is numbered L.K. 95 in the ledger maintained first by Amy Cohn and then Abram Cohn after 1919. Cohn used his wife’s system for naming designs; thus the ledger identifies the motif on the lid as arrow points, and the motif on the body of the basket as generation/descendent marks. According to the ledger, L.K. 95 was woven between December 1923 and March 1924.
