"Clamshell" shape baskets - Uganda
These covered baskets have a top - a cover - that is almost identical to the bottom. I find this reminiscent of a clamshell (although this is not the way the Africans who make them see them; it's just my observation). In fact, the top is effectively a second, almost identical basket: 2 for the price of one. With the cover on, each basket measures 4 1/4" high x 9" diameter.
