  • Taghkanic baskets are some of the finest baskets ever made.

    They are not Native American - they were made by a few hermit-like families in West Taghkanic, NY who supported themselves by selling these fine baskets. ( See the BLOG on this site " Taghkanic Baskets - They're Not Indian").

    This one has a swing handle make of hickory

    Black ash splint, double lashed rim

    Wonderful early patina, probably dating from the late 1800s

    10 1/8" x 5 1/4", 7" to top of handle

    Very good antique condition with a small piece of rim lashing missing.

    $15 shipping
