Although I use it as a wine bottle carrier...it looks like it has some age to it and wondered what it was originally intended for. Great craftsmanship and very solid.
Any ideas?

    Most beautiful piece of work! How large is it, please? In which part of the country was it acquired, please?

    App. 15" tall and 5" across. We are from Maine, but not sure where my Mom had found it.

    Hi, Ollie. I think that your piece is something special - simply gorgeous, and it could also be rather valuable in terms of market value. I mention market value because you have asked for market value in previous postings.

    I remark that the handle alone is solid wood, and carved in one piece from one piece of wood. No joins. Remarkable. Great patina, quality craftsmanship, a fine heirloom. Here's a link to help you in your search. It might take a while to find a like piece, but you'll encounter basket colletors alone the way who will help you. miKKo
