Trophy cup, ca. 1930

Contributed by Hudson Museum, Univ. of Maine

This basket form appears to date to the 1930s and may be based on the trophies that Andrew Sockalexis, a Penobscot, received as a marathon runner.

It utilizes Hong Kong cord, a manufactured paper twine introduced in the 1920s as a substitute for sweet grass braid.
