This basket is a contemporary version of the traditional Nantucket Lightship basket. Beginning with a beautiful cherry wood base, the hand tapered staves are shaped one at a time to form to the mold. Fine cane and assorted yarns and fibers are used as weavers creating a variety of sizes and shapes of hills and valleys.

You can see the quality of the weaving from the close-up photo. The spacing between the staves is the same from base to top, and there are no gaps in the tight, well packed weaving. The cherry wood rim is glued on with high quality, clear drying glue.

Multiple coats of tung oil brings out the natural beauty of the cherry wood base, rim and lid. A beautiful treasure that will last for decades!

The base measures 5" in diameter, the top is 7" diameter, and it's about 6" tall.
