More About this Item


Description: This is a New England Shaker handmade black ash huge gathering basket with a carved swing handle from Mount Lebanon New York circa early 1800s for your consideration. The New England Shakers were known to make beautiful handmade baskets and each of their baskets express a signature of style and craftsmanship. The ratio of weavers to uprights is noted in the New England Shaker made baskets. The ends of the weavers on this antique Shaker basket are tapered out so they would not overlap with rigidness or bumpiness, which is only seen on Shaker made baskets. The handle is expertly formed and carved. The Inside of this Shaker made basket displays no overturned weavers as they wanted the basket to have a neat clean appearance on the inside of the basket. Every other weaver was cut at the rim of the basket to allow for this beautiful inside finish. The outside shows every other weaver tapered and tuned down on the outside of the antique basket. You would only find this type of precision and attention to detail is only found on Shaker made baskets. The antique New England Shaker basket tapers toward the bottom and has a full bulbous body with woven tapered skids for the bottom to "wear" better. The rim on the basket is finished in the same fashion as the Taghkanic basket with a criss cross finish that gives a beautiful appearance and durability to the double bentwood rim. Notice the tapered bentwood handle that end in the center of the basket. The handles are finely carved and notched and shaped into the length of the basket and the handle is hand carved, steam bent and pegged. There is an old nail that has secured the handle over years of time.
Dimensions: Handle to handle is 16 inches, 10 inches high not including handle, and 48 inches round in circumference.
Date: 1800s
Condition Report: Excellent condition with one minor handle loop that the taper has slight loss.
