Vintage Charleston Sweet Grass "Jack in the Pulpit" Basket Wall PocketVintage Charleston Sweet Grass "Jack in the Pulpit" Basket Wall PocketVintage Charleston Sweet Grass "Jack in the Pulpit" Basket Wall Pocket

A hard-to-find Charleston sweet grass wall pocket with a Jack in the Pulpit shape! You don't see these very often! 7 3/8" high x 6 5/8" at its widest. Excellent condition.

If you visit Charleston, South Carolina's Old Slave Market or drive north from Charleston along the old coastal highway from Mt. Pleasant to Awendaw and McClellanville to Georgetown, you will see the African American descendants of slaves who still gather the sweet grass and pine needles that grow along the tidal plain. They strip and dry the sweet grass and then painstakingly hand weave wonderful baskets characterized by their dual colors and centuries-old designs. Each basket is a work of art, brought to the colonies by African slaves who wove these for their masters' use. The Gullah culture is a treasure of American folk art, and to own a piece is to own part of southern history.
