Welcome to The "AntiquesArt" sales. We always try to start out items with low starting offer no matter what the value. Which I am sure both collectors and buyers will like very much,.....the way a Real sale should be.
This week we have this gorgeous and rare antique 19th century acorn basket. I believe it is from the mid-1800's. It is made with a wood slat frame and the basket weave is done with straw. I believe it was made to hold tread for tattering or lace making. and the hole in the top would be where the string comes out. I have found a few on line and they are American indian made but are made with wooden woven pieces where as this one is woven with grasses or straws. The satin ribbon interior and top ribbon are origial. The interior satin is whole and in excellent condition. The top ribbon is not fragile. I don't know if it was indian made or not but if I had my guess it would be a tribe in North Carolina or someplace that used grasses to weave. When we purchased this it also came with a very small wooden acorn with a bronze top (it is hand forged not machine made). It also has a small hole in the top of the acorn and it may have been attached to the basket in some way. The basket itself is in excellent solid condition without any missin pieces. It measures 6"(without the top loop handle)x 4 2/3" and the loop handle extends 4" above the lid. A gorgeous, unusual, rare andtique piece.
