A round, splint handled basket, 9 ½” in diameter and about 10” to the top of the handle (the sides of the basket are 2 ½” high). Solid double-wrapped construction with a push-up bottom. Thick, original red paint with appropriate wear. Very fine condition: the basket is solid; the handle complete and securely attached, although it does have a slight cant to it. There is one break in the double rim-wrapping, but no other damage to the splints on the side or bottom. This basket probably dates to the early 20th century, perhaps a bit earlier. It was probably a market basket, or used to gather vegetables in the garden.
