This is an Antique Primitive New England Round Handled Ash Splint Basket in Apple Green Milk Paint. The base of the basket has a pencil signature Made __ 1862. The bent handle is notched into the rim, and the rim is single woven (some loss). The paint is original to the basket with all the appropriate wear. The bottom edge has a little bit of weaver loss and a break. The basket is very sturdy and wonderful due to the paint. This wonderful basket measures 8 1/2 inches tall and 7 inches in diameter.
