Precisely Woven Basket in Oyster White Paint.....SALE PENDING
Probably New England, ca 19th century, around 1880. Possibly Shaker made. Original white paint on the visible surfaces (the bottom unpainted) on a very carefully crafted, delicate, hex-shaped body with round wrapped rim. This form with open-weave often intended for cheese drying, yet this basket appears to have had little use. Despite its feather-light delicate feel, it has survived in terrific condition with just minor loss. About 11 1/2 inches diameter x 3 tall. Provenance: Private Northeast collection for twenty years.
