5" Open Round Nantucket Basket
Finely crafted 5" Open Round Nantucket Basket features a turned ash wood base (also available in oak or cherry wood), hand-tapered and beveled cane staves, fine Nantucket-grade cane weaving, and traditional Nantucket basketry rattan reed rims. Hardwood rims and hardwood staves for this fine Nantucket basket are also available for an additional cost.
(The photos show this 5" Nantucket Basket crafted with oak wood staves, oak rims, base and swing handle with a medium oak stain.)
The 5" Nantucket Basket also has a matching hardwood hand-carved Nantucket basket swing handle attached with bone or ivory knobs and washers and a brass handle bolt. Colorful ivory scrimshaw knobs are also available. Fine craftsmanship and attention to details, just like my other fine Nantucket baskets.
This 5" Nantucket basket measures 5.5" diameter, 4.5" high and 8" high at handle. Signed and dated on the base by the weaver.
