Best 19th C. Tiny Oval Swing-handle Nantucket Basket Carved Ears/aafa/patina+++ For Sale
Offered today is the BEST Nantucket Basket I have had the pleasure to own, and I've owned hundreds!!! Fresh out of a Mass estate, and I mean fresh....see pics for the layer of dust, definitely NOT from a dust-free home! Oh so SWEET Tiny 7-1/2" OVAL swing handle Nantucket Basket with carved wooden "Ears" representative of the earlier period dating 1880-1900. Beautifully carved swing handle attached to equally beautifully carved wooden ears, exceptional nut brown patina, and MINT condition. Rare small size!!!! Bottom board appears to be cherry and bears the ORIGINAL PRICE of $.70, yep 70 cents!!!! Appears to have other pencil inscription, but I can't make it out. I can find NO damage, NONE! Early period Nantucket baskets are extremely hard to find, and taking color, condition, size, carved ears....this example has to be rated "BEST'!! I will offer this basket ONLY ONCE at sale and should reserve not be reached, Iwill not sell after sale ends, as seems to be a habit here on . If basket does not meet reserve it will go into my collection/retirement fund. ONE opportunity to purchase, one, period.! I would not even consider selling, had I not just put a new heating system in house. One tiny spot of paint splatter on rim wrap. Do NOT let this one get away, you won't get another opportunity. Please view all photo's as they show the quality of the basket and are considered part of the description. Guaranteed as Represented. Shipping of $20.00 includes insurance...no guessing. SEE OTHER LISTINGS THIS WEEK FOR MORE QUALITY AMERICANA! THIS LITTLE BEAUTY WILL BE DOULE BOXED AND INSURED FOR FULL PURCHASE PRICE TO ENSURE SAFE DELIVERY. Layer of dust or real-estate inside included free of charge. LOL.
