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.

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.
