Sitting handsomely on an early linsey-woolsey mat is this deep rye dough bowl or basket. Used by Pennsylvania and New England women to raise dough for bread. This particular basket is deep, standing 5 1/4" high. The diameter across the top is 12 1/2". It is in exemplary condition. We love it for its canted sides, its clean weave, its versatility and simple American good looks.
