Old Handmade Woven Painted Basket

Beautiful, handmade, handpainted Woven Basket, painted in primitive style of large flowers and leaves; very attractive. The weaving is over/under, and is exceedingly well done; does not look like the work of a beginner at all. I do not know what the material is, but it is a natural, "woody" material; not artificial like plastic or raffia. The basket is quite firm, not delicate as it looks. It measures about 3" tall, 3-1/8" rim diameter, 5" shoulder diameter, 2-7/8" base diameter.

Condition is wonderful for this item, with minor, scattered paint losses as can be seen in photos. We do not find any breaks in the weaving. Lots of dust inside and outside, as we try not to disturb the condition, finish or patina of old items that we offer.

I cannot be certain, as baskets are not my expertise, but I would suggest (but do not guarantee) that the age of this item is around 1900-1925, and probably Eastern U.S. $12 US Shipping.
