Large Charleston Gullah Sweetgrass Hand Made Coiled Basket By Sue Middleton For Sale

Large Charleston Gullah Sweetgrass Hand Made Coiled Basket By Sue Middleton

THIS IS A VERY LARGE BASKET, MEASURES 17 1/2 INCHES LONG X 14 INCHES WIDE X 6 1/2 INCHES DEEP AND IS 15 INCHES TALL TO TOP OF HANDLE. WE BOUGHT IT FROM AN ESTATE sale AND IT WAS FULL OF PINE CONES. WHEN I REMOVED THE CONES I FOUND A CARD IN THE BOTTOM THAT SAYS:"SWEET GRASS BASKET SWEET GRASS BASKETS ARE MADE OF SWEET GRASS, PINE NEEDLES, PALMETTO AND SOME BASKETS HAVE BULL RUSH ALSO. THEY ARE ONE OF THE OLDEST HAND MADE ARTS BY THE BLACK PEOPLE. MADE BY " AND HAS THE SIGNATURE OF SUE MIDDLETON. I GOOGLED HER AND FOUND THAT SHE IS THE GRANDDAUGHTER OF RENOWN FLOWER LADY AND BASKET MAKER MAGGIE MAZYCK AND HAS BEEN MAKING BASKETS ALL HER LIFE. SHE SELLS THEM IN THE CHARLESTON MARKET AND ALSO AT THE ATALAYA ARTS AND CRAFTS FESTIVAL. SHE HAS BASKETS IN THE ATLANTA HISTORY CENTER AND THE MCKESSICLE MUSEUM AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH CAROLINA. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL BASKET AND THE ONE SPOT THAT I SHOW A PICTURE OF ON THE HANDLE IS THE ONLY PLACE I SEE ANYTHING WRONG. THERE ARE MUCH SMALLER BASKETS LISTED IN SELLING, WITH offerS, FOR 50 AND UP BUT WILL START THIS ONE THERE, WE GOT A GOOD BUY. THE CARD WILL COME WITH THE BASKET
