Here is an early 20th Century miniature splint buttocks basket with honey tone patina. The basket is symmetrically made. It is 3.5” long, 3.5” to top of handle and 3,5” from outside of handles. Splints are nice and tightly woven. I see no broken or missing weavers. There are 10 ribs. The handle splint goes under the basket to form the bottom support. It is lapped center bottom. The basket is attractive and sturdy. It is from my collection of early NJ baskets. A nice addition to a basket collection or use with a larger size primitive or cloth doll.
