This beautiful Shaker inspired gathering basket has a flat bottom with an arc of inlaid stripes adding an accent to the honey coloured wood, shallow sides and a rounded handle. I believe this is a vintage piece, perhaps hand made in someone's work shop. I have been unable to locate and similar examples. This basket would make a wonderful accessory for an avid gardener. I can just see it overflowing with freshly cut blooms or herbs as they're carried from garden to house.
The basket measures 15" in length and 10.5' in width. The handle stands 7 3/4" high and the rim of the basket is 1 1/4" high. It is in excellent condition and is sure to delight for many years to come.
