This beautiful old basket was made by hand from split wood, nails, and canvas handles. I am guessing it was made in the 1920s or earlier. The shape is a lovely round rectangle and the handles are attached. The base has nailed wooden straps for strength. This basket is in antique condition, with a patina of wear, scratches, rust, and some broken splints, (see photos).
This piece would be a perfect addition to a basket collection and makes a great spot to store quilts or towels.
Condition: Wear consistent with age and use - some wood slats broken at the base of basket (see photos)
