A fine Nantucket Lightship basket purse with cover having a cartouche with a pair of soaring birds. The expertly woven ovoid purse was made by Farnum in 1978, a firm well regarded for their quality products, and in their first year of business in 1978, making this purse an early and highly collectible item.
