Nantucket Basket Ice Bucket

Finely crafted Ice Bucket Nantucket Basket with a cherry wood base, hand-tapered and beveled cane staves and fine cane weaving, dyed rattan reed or cherry wood rims and a finely turned cherry wood lid with knob and carved cherry wood swing handle.

The hand-carved cherry wood swing handle is attached to the Nantucket Ice Bucket Basket with your choice of bone or ivory knobs.

The traditional rattan reed basket rims are pre-drilled, then nailed with thin brass escutcheon pins, which are cut flush, peened over and sanded smooth.  The basket rims are then single lashed in cane, with a broad piece of formed cane on top of the rims to cover the slim gap between the inside and outside basket rims.  As in all fine Nantucket basketweaving, an additional piece of cane is used not only under the rims of the body, but also on top of the basket lid - covering the slim gap between the rims and the weaving. 

The interior of the Ice Bucket Nantucket Lightship Basket features a permanent waterproof liner, which allows full use of the Ice Bucket Nantucket Basket without damage to the surrounding basket. The inside of the lid also has a protective plastic insert to protect the cherry wood lid from moisture damage.

Extra care is taken in finishing this Nantucket Basket to ensure no water damage will occur during use.  A final finish of multiple coats of hand-applied varnish are applied to both the inside and outside of the Ice Bucket Nantucket Basket.  This brings out the full beauty of the natural materials, and helps to protect and strengthen the basket.  All the hardwood parts are given even more attention to protect and burnish, bringing them a deep luster which is glass-smooth to the touch.  These, and many other fine details, set my Nantucket baskets apart from all others.

The Ice Bucket Nantucket Basket measures 7" diameter, (8" knob to knob) 6.5" high to rims, 8.5" high to top of knob and 11.5" high at handle.  Signed and dated on the base.  This Nantucket Basket Ice Bucket weighs 2.25 pounds.
