Vintage Trapper Basket - Rare Adirondack Large Trapper Basket

$370.00

Vintage and still handsome - Adirondack trapper or pack basket made of flat woven wood. These baskets were generally made in America and used to carry all manner of gear – cooking, trapping, fishing gear by hunters, guides or those who spent their time in the mountains or forests.

This is a large, sturdy basket with a carved wooden handle at the top and a nice handhold - canvas shoulder straps with metal buckles. These vintage trapper baskets are difficult to find in good condition and this one does show some wear consistent with its age with a few broken pieces in the weave (mainly on a lower corner and along the front bottom edge), some staining on the straps and rust on the buckles and there are some white marks on the woven portions. The color is a rich honey with some darkening in the lower portions. The inside of the basket is quite clean. All in all, the basket shows beautifully for a vintage piece and still has lots of life left in it.

Very nice to use as intended but also a lovely décor piece for the hearth with kindling, for florals or hang in a cabin or lake home as a statement piece. It is large, measuring approximately 20 inches tall at the tallest portion of the back – this is without the handle. It has a nice large, round opening on the top which measures 12 inches across. The bottom is a rectangular shape measuring 12 inches by 8 ½ inches.
