ORIGINAL ANTIQUE NANTUCKET STYLE BASKET - HOURGLASS FORM w SINGLE PIECE BENTWOOD HANDLE INSET THROUGH RIM AND BASE

THIS IS A GREAT ORIGINALPIECE.I RECENTLY ACQUIRED A SMALL COLLECTION OFBASKETS FROM A RHODE ISLAND ESTATE. I DONT KNOW MUCH ABOUT BASKETS BUT THOUGHT THIS ONE WAS PARTICULARLY UNIQUE. DATING TO THE LATE 19TH CENTURY THIS SEEMS TO BE A UNIQUE FORM FOR A BASKET. THE BASKET ITSELF STANDS 7 1/4 INCHES TALL AND IS 6 3/4 INCHES WIDE AT THE TOP. THE BOTTOM MEASURES ABOUT 4 1/4 INCHES ACROSS. THEWEAVE IS EXACTLY LIKE MOST OF THE NANTUCKET BASKETS I HAVE SEEN OUT THERE. THE WEAVE DOES EXTEND TO THE BOTTOM. THE HANDLE IS A SINGLE PIECE OF BENT OAK THAT STARTS AT THE BOTTOM ON ONE SIDE AND UP THROUGH THE FLARED LIP AND OVER BACKDOWN THE OTHERSIDE, THROUGH THE LIP AGAIN AND BACK INTO THE BASE. A REAL WONDERFUL SHAPE AND FORM.BECAUSE OF THE FORM, I BELIEVE IT TO BE A FLOWER BASKET. ONE THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN CARRIED ON A GIRLS ARM AND WOULD HAVE HELD THE STEMS TIGHTER THAN IT HELD THE FLOWERS. THE BIG ARCHING HANDLE WOULD HAVE ALLOWED ROOM FOR BOTH THE ARM AND THE BOUQUET. BASKET MEASURES 17 1/2 INCHES FROM TOP OF HANDLE TO BOTTOM OF BASKET. IT DOES NOT STAND WITHOUT ASSISTANCE. REALLY A WONDERFUL ORIGINAL19TH CENTURY AMERICAN align="center" style="font-family: Arial;">CHECK THE PICTURES ON THIS GREAT PIECE. DONT MISS THIS align="center" style="font-family: Arial;">SHIPPING AND HANDLING AND INSURANCE CAN BE CALCULATED. ALL ITEMS ARE BEING SOLD AS IS. PICTURES ARE AN EXCELLENT INDICATION OF CONDITION.
