This miniature basket is and about 5” to the top of the handle. It dates to the very early part of the 20th century, perhaps a bit earlier. The basket has a rich, nut-brown color and there is a band of 7 “weavers” around the middle of the basket in original blue paint. There is pencil-writing on the bottom, most likely a signature and possibly a “presentation” note, but I cannot make them out. The basket is in very fine condition: tight and no major damage, only a couple of very minor weaver-breaks. The rim-wrap is complete and the handle is without breaks, although there is a “rub” that shows up as the light patch visible in the photos.
