Baskets are constructed of oak ribs and rims and have matching turned bottoms with
tapering edges and concentric circles; oak bentwood handles are shaped and pivot on
brass ears…good color. (Generally, very good, few rim-wrap imperfections and losses
to largest basket which can be easily and inexpensively restored by one of Nantucket’s
expert basket makers. (Large to small: h-9", dia-13"; h-8.5", dia-11.25";

Oak, ash, and rattan
(Height at Handle: 8.75"; height: 4.5"; diameter: 6.25")


Antique Nantucket Lightship Basket, Small
Likely circa 1880-1900
Oak, ash, and rattan, entire view 1

Round basket with taller than usual carved and notched fixed square handle; a pair of
typical wood disks receive the ribs which are secured with tiny wood pegs; disks are
each branded C. BAKER. [No interior/exterior concentric rings turned into base nor
screw hole for affixing to mold] The rim is interesting…the inner and outer rim support a
top rim; all tightly secured with double cross lashing using no escutcheon pins. Very
good condition; a tad of wood loss to outside corners of handle bail due to shrinkage
early in the basket’s life; rim is somewhat out-of-round…also due to shrinkage.
