More About this Item


Description: This is an outstanding rare American made Taghkanic basket from Columbia County, New York circa 1800s for your consideration. Taghkanic or Taconic, also known as "Bushwacker Baskets", come from a Township in the lower corner of Columbia County in New York State, of the same name, pronounced Ta-kon-ik. This Taghkanic basket is handmade of black ash wood. The Taghkanic basket has a hand carved black ash swing handle that is attached to two wooden eyelets woven into the sides. The Taghkanic basket has a square bottom flat splint weave with a round rim and bulbous body. Most Taghkanic baskets had rounded bottoms with a bump up which makes this basket a rare and uncommon design. Most other basket rims are taller than they are thick; the Taghkanic rims are the opposite. They are thickened laterally, Taghkanic rims extend out from the top edge of the basket more, giving it a very special look. Where the uprights are turned down under the rims, the turndown is short. They have very short tails, and they're turned alternately on the outside and the inside, outside and inside. The rims are always double lashed to the body and they're always crisscrossed nicely especially around where the handle is attached, to give it strength and to prevent racking (or loosening). Where the uprights are turned down under the rims, the turndown is short and they have very short tails. The swing handled Taghkanic splint basket, has a beautifully patinated, warm, nut brown color.
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 age appropriate wear and patina.
