DESCRIPTION: Baskets have been around in one form or another forever. Native American women strapped flat cradle baskets to their backs to carry their babies. American baskets are handmade works of art that are functional. Farmers harvested fruits and vegetables from the garden and hauled them in baskets. Eggs were collected in baskets and homesteaders gathered berries in baskets. Baskets are still as useful today and the Antique American Baskets are coveted by collectors world wide. We are pleased to offer this Outstanding Large Rectangular Shaped, Paint Decorated Deep Garden Gathering Basket from New England, circa 1800's for your consideration. The antique basket is made of black ash with a large carved bentwood handle with the "Best" dark aged patina. The antique garden gathering basket was painted the “Best” traditional New England red stain. There are many fine details that are incorporated into this splint basket. The antique woven splint basket has a hand carved bentwood handle that has been notched and carved and deeply woven into the sides of the basket. The bottom of basket has an open weave to allow air flow and three additional garden ground runners. There is a small minor loss in one of the corners (see photos), which doesn’t affect the strength, character or integrity of this basket that is well over 100 years. The antique basket is in excellent condition with an age appropriate wear and patina.
