Material: Ash splint and carved handle, original paint
Condition: Very good, bottom has tree small mouse chews, two the size of a dime, the
other a nickel. Original paint, dry patina.
Additional Information: The instant we saw this fine work basket and the subtle
tonality if it’s red and yellow painted decoration it spoke to us aesthetically in the
manner of Mark Rothko. We consider it one of the great baskets.
Basket remains in very good condition and displays bright color; rectangular, wide bands of splint alternate
with narrow bands in colors of bittersweet and black; bentwood handles.
(Height: 9.5"; width: 20.75"; depth: 19.5")
Rectangular basket featuring bowed sides; double carved rim having wide single wrap;
