WONDERFUL ANTIQUE MINIATURE BASKET IN SAFFRON PAINT
Up for sale is this antique miniature splint basket in saffron paint.
This tiny museum quality basket is in virtually mint condition with absolutely no problems to report. It measures 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" across the "open weave" base and is only 3" tall, in total. As you can see, the form is as desirable as the tiny size. A basket this small should be in excellent condition because it is too small for any utilititarian use, but merely to promote the skills of the weaver or perhaps created for a special gift. This may be the primary reason why they are rarely found.
It was found in New England and has been in a private collection for many years.
If you love good early authentic American miniature baskets, this will be a premier piece to enhance your collection!($275)
