A beautiful handmade oak splint basket from a Cherokee artisan, Cherokee, North Carolina. The 2 handle purse basket is in excellent condition. The 2 handles are hand carved and the basket is woven with native oak splints and brown dyed oak splints. No signed, it was purchased from a friend who purchased it in Cherokee, NC. Measures 6 1/2" high to top of the sections where the handles are attached. With the handle up, the basket is 10" high. Measures 9 1/4" wide and 5" deep. There is one splint which is broken on the interior just below one of the handles. The color is not as yellow as the photos appear. Otherwise, in great condition. Please look at the photos and let me know if you have questions.
