My husband found it at a sale and I kept it, years ago. I've been told it's made of pine needles, others say the materials are to fat to be pine needles. I have no clue as to the wood in the lid and the bottom or how the designs o the basket were made. It smells like someone might have kept Potpourri in it, I've had nothing in it. It is about 6Lx4 & 1/4 inches W and about 2 & 1/2 inches high including the carved head. I've been told it could be from South America or New England and Florida (those were the three opinions). I've seen a basket on CW that has a wood bottom and it was attributed to the Seminoles, but I really don't know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
