Large Gathering Basket
This very large gathering basket has two carved splint handles and a double wrapped rim. It finely woven with nice kick-up in the bottom. From a private collection. It has a number written on one of splints on the base. This could have been someone's inventory number or perhaps a deaccession number from a museum. There is one break (shown in a photo below), and a couple of smaller, insignificant breaks. But that doesn't affect the beauty and durability of this early basket. Late 19th to early 20th C. Measuring 19 to 19 1/2' in diameter by 13 to 13 1/2" in height to the rim and 15 1/2" in height to the top of the handles.
