There has not been much published about Sally Edd but she clearly was a wonderful basketry weaver. Lawrence Dawson, a noted early anthropologist who was at the Lowie Museum [now called the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology] at the University of California/Berkeley, thought highly enough of her to include one of her baskets in his important book Strands of Time: Yokuts, Mono and Miwok Basketmakers (Fresno Metropolitan Museum: Fresno, 1988), p. 4:

It is important to note that he lists her as Dunlap Mono. The Dunlap Mono frequently intermarried with the nearby Yokuts families and their heritage often includes Mono as well as Yokuts.

The strong polychrome design in the basket in this offering makes a powerful artistic statement. The basket has survived the years in excellent condition and warrants placement in any basket collection.
