DescriptionThis jar-shaped pair of baskets, made by coiling, is identical in size and shape. On each, a long and narrow mouth widens to a sturdy, oblong base. On one side of each jar, there are narrow tabs of black- and bronze-colored metal which protrude from the sides. The opposite side has narrower wires in bronze and black that resemble fine hairs growing out of the baskets. The two pieces have different patterning but are otherwise the same.
