Wonderful Antique Paint Decorated Two Tone Splint Basket with a carved handle. So charming, this smaller size basket may have been made for a young girl. The paint makes this one special, the lighter colored baskets are not as common. I love the green painted detailing, and the rare to find smaller size.
The carved handle has such lovely patina from decades of use, it is a stationary flat top handle. This basket is in wonderful condition for its age, kept very carefully by a collector, no doubt, as there are no breaks. A charming addition to your antique basket collection.
