More About this Item


Description: This is a large handmade apple orchard gathering basket from New England circa 1800s. Baskets are useful objects that have served man in every aspect of daily life from the field to the table, from the garden to the market and from the sewing room to the laundry. Today, collectors covet baskets as decorative objects, rather then for their original purpose. The apple-gathering basket is hand woven with oak wide slats that overlap forming the body of the basket. There are bentwood bands that are secured to the rim and center of the basket with copper tack joinery. The apple-gathering basket has a bail handle with a hand turned wooden grip. The bottom of the apple-gathering basket is made of double circular wooden planks, one on the inside and the other on the outside.
Dimensions: 10 inches high, 15 inches wide, and 46 inches round in circumference.
Date: 1800s
Condition Report: Excellent Condition other then some minor breakage on the slats caused by decades of use on a working farm (see photos).
