Harris was considered one of the most talented basket makers, his work often
compared with Shaker baskets; he may have studied with the Shakers. His work was
also inspired by New England and Taconic Bushwhacker traditions. His distinctive
tradition is the double bottom constructed with two sets of crossed splints resembling a
sunflower. Fine original condition, outstanding paint and patina.
