Large Appalachian Market Basket
A functional market basket large enough to carry vegetables, picnic supplies, blankets, books, beach supplies or other treasures. The basket is also sturdy with a woven oak handle for added strength. It is designed much like the early Appalachian market baskets years ago that would be found in barns or on back porches after being put to a hard days use.
Now in my 34th year of basketmaking, I am a full time basket maker with work in many museum and private collections including the Smithsonian and the Museum of Art and Design.
Many of my baskets are made to hold your interest but this basket can hold your objects along with your interest.
It measures 20″long by 13 ” high by 13″ deep. It is dyed with crushed walnut hull dye and a coating of linseed oil.
This basket is signed, dated, and numbered .
It is lovingly handcrafted by me in my studio in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina.
