Ash Acorn Basket

This Ash Acorn Basket consists of mostly narrow splints with some braided fibers and Sweetgrass strands. The basketmaker added three rings to the top of the basket. The larger ring loops through the two smaller rings. Two more rings appear on one side of the basket and the lid. You can add a tie or peg to keep the basket closed.  One additional loop on the opposite side attaches the lid to the basket, keeping the two pieces together.
The lid of the basket features a hole in the center. This makes the basket useful for stringing a ball twine, string or yarn that you store in the basket.  The inside of the basket shows the original blue-green color of the splints.
A previous owner had this Ash Basket but it remains in excellent condition.  The lid fits securely. You will find no obvious damage to the splints.
The Ash Splint Basket measures 5" high (with the lid on). The diameter of the lid is 4.25", the bottom diameter measures 3".
