Most oval Nantucket Baskets can be completed and ready to ship within 8-10 weeks. Holidays require extra time. The last date for ordering an Oval Nantucket Basket for Christmas is September 15th! I do accept orders after September 15th, but will not guarantee their arrival prior to the holidays.
These finely hand-woven and handcrafted Nantucket Basket Ovals feature a variety of traditional rattan cane staves or hardwood staves, rattan or hardwood basket rims and superbly carved and finished hardwood basket swing handles attached with bone, ivory or scrimshaw knobs and brass handle pins.
Additional bone or ivory basket decorations can include carvings in the base or bone or ivory base plugs.
Nantucket-grade cane weaving is very evident as are the traditional Nantucket basketry details such as scrupulously individually spaced basket staves, which are hand-tapered and hand-beveled, tight cane basket weaving and fastidiously carved rattan and hardwood rims, which are pre-drilled and nailed with tiny brass escutcheon pins.
Every Nantucket basket I personally handcraft is signed and dated on the base prior to final finishing. This final finish includes hand-applied varnish and clipping of any stray cane hairs which are prone to appear during the basket weaving process. These and many other fine craftsman details set my Nantucket baskets apart from all others.
