Offered here is a Fine Nantucket Swing handle Baket-Purse-Handbag by noted Nantucket maker Sherwin Boyer. In this instance, a carved whale adorns the top. Note the finely carved swing handle.Rare small 7-1/2" size possibly made for a young or "petite" lady. Signed on bottom with typical Boyer signature and one can see the outline of the original paper label which would have read:" I was made on Nantucket Island/I am strong and stout/ Don't lose me or burn me/ I'll never wear out. S.P.Boyer" Also inscribed in pencil on bottom is "Nantucket, Mass" Exceptional condition with no breaks to the body, the only issue I can find is one end of the loop that holds the pin is broken, the leather is broke on one end, but all wrap remains intact, just mentioning for accuracy, nothing missing. The original braided string and closure pin are intact as well. Small size, signature, wonderful honey-nut brown patina, and condition make this an outstanding example of Sherwin Boyer's workmanship and a fine addition if you collect Nantucket baskets.
