Provenance: The attribution to Maggie Mayo James has been made by Marvin Cohodas. In an accompanying document he indicates: "The three-rod Washoe degikup pictured below...may be securely attributed to Maggie Mayo James of Carson Valley, one of the most skilled, innovative, and influential Washoe weavers. The basket shape, technique, design, and arrangement suggest that Maggie James likely wove this basket between 1910 and 1920."
