Rare Virginia Miniature Egg Basket

$125

Rare Virginia Miniature Egg Basket – It is unusual to find these diminutive, hand woven egg baskets. This particular example was recently recovered from a house in Bedford County, Virginia. It is in overall very good condition, with some minor loss of woven material, on one side of the basket. The basket retains a very pleasing, aged patina and is strong. It dates to the latter half of the 19th century. It measures as follows: Height from bottom of basket to top of handle – 3.5”; width across top of basket from handle point of attachment to opposite handle point of attachment– 4”; height of just basket – 1.5”; width across top of basket – 3.5”
