$95.00

Designed and made beautifully enough to be considered American folk art, this rye basket is sturdy and in gorgeous condition.  Large, it displays beautifully. The weave is nice and tight, so it can be used to hold various things of many sizes.  Often, these large, deep rye baskets were used as dough risers, especially in Pennsylvania and New England.  13" across the top; 7" across the bottom; stands 5" high.
