New York Swing Handle Basket
This is an exceptional early basket from New York state. It retains a deeply oxidized patina that almost looks as though it was painted. It has a fine double lashed rim, a distinctive carved bottom kickup splint form, and unusual wood-pinned bent wood handle attachments. Most likely made by Columbia County, NY school of basket makers. A wonderful basket to ad to any collection! In very fine condition. Measuring 9 3/4" by 10 ½" in diameter by 7" tall (not counting the handle).
