19th Century Woven Splint Basket
This is a very nice old 19th Century splint basket. It is a little misshapen with an unusual handle. It sits lopsided. It has good color and patina.
The ribs of the basket are nailed into the hardwood rim at the top. The handle is also made of a hardwood and is shaped.
There is some splint missing which is to be expected in a basket of this age.
It measures approximately 18 ½”long and 15 ½” across and 8“ deep.
This item is on consignment for Normandie and Gordon Schell Antiques.
