I don’t know what it is about baskets that makes one feel warm, but that is what this one did for me; could it be the gathering of eggs for a hearty morning breakfast? This old Kentucky split hickory is quite lovely, even with the slight staining in the bottom, from maybe a few broken eggs at one time; the patina and color is something that only comes with age. I’ve been told the basket dates to early 1900s. It is quite attractive and aside from a few snapped woven slats in the outer bottom (check photos) it is in otherwise great vintage condition and sturdy. The basket measures 13 inches across end to end by 12 inches wide bottom of handle to handle by 12 inches high including handle. The basket part is 7 ½ inches deep. The handle is totally in tact and secure. It’s a wonderful example of fine Kentucky weaving. Sales tax must be collected for buyers living in or picking up in New York State or Massachusetts.
