Antique Gathering Basket
Lovely antique hand-woven splint gathering basket with a curved, hand-carved wooden handle. It has a VERY UNIQUE and pretty shape. It is almost reminiscent of a buttocks basket on the bottom the way it curves up every so slightly in the middle. Its unique shape bellies out on top and then curves back in towards the bottom.
Its carved handle has a wider portion on the underside which gives it such a nice hand feel. There are also wood “stops” on the part of the handle that goes down through the weaving which keeps the handle from pulling out. The handle does move a little but will not pull out. This is a beautiful all original basket with great detail – wonderful to display with other baskets, use for florals or give it its own special place. There are some breaks in the weaving and some wear due to its age but that does not detract from its sturdiness and only adds to its antique charm.
The basket measures 14 inches by 11 inches across the top. The bottom measures approximately 7 inches by 6 inches. Its height without the handle is 7 ½ inches and to the top of the handle is approximately 12 inches.
