Strawberries

Groups of three leaves, are an early design on Nipmuc baskets. Medallion and stockade designs were often accompanied by strawberries, in groups, alone or on vines, which probably represented particular people, plants or areas of land.

"A boundary of strawberries is a reference to a physical boundary"
[Handsman and McMullen]
