Gorgeous 19th Century Large Round American Hand Woven Rib Type Splint Basket, finely woven. The rim is single wrapped, the arched handle is sturdy and beautifully designed. The handle wraps around the basket form for extra stability. Baskets like this were used for carrying vegetables, flowers, and even "groceries" long ago, this is a fabulous larger size.
A decorative treasure for your collection, this basket is a delight to display, or to use. Original natural surface with outstanding patina, I love this basket - so useable and a work of art.
