Wonderful 19th Century Miniature 4" Splint Melon/buttocks Basket~great Patina :
You are offerding on this Wonderful Vintage Antique Miniature Splint BasketI believefrom the end of the 19th century. The form is I believe called the "melon" basket because of its distinct shape, but I have seen these referred to as "buttock" baskets also. The basket measures 4 inches from handle to handle and the opening from end to end measures 4-1/4 inches...the largest measurement is the outside body and it measure 4-7/8 inches at its widest point and the basket is about 4 inches tall to the top of the handle. The basket has never been painted but it has a lovely warm patina that can only come from age. It is in excellent condition for its age, I see only one small spot where the splint has a tiny break that is hardly noticeable without close inspection. This will make a Great addition to anyones vintage collection!! Please email me with any questions. Payment is due in 7 days.
