Thanks to Leah, I now know the truth about this basket! it is much older then I expected being over 100 years old and is considered a Bohemian Overshot basket! and is actually Thorny on both the Beautiful Hand Made Twisted Handle and the exterior, this Basket also features a lovely blue accent on the very outer edges.
Thanks for Looking!
Best Regards
Shawnl86

    Hi Shawn. love, love, love the overshot basket. I would like to let you know your basket is Bohemian. There is a very similar basket advertised in a 1892 Butler Brother's Catalog. Handle is different, but that is okay. Various styles of handle were used. The shape of the bowl is spot on! The "All About Glass" magazine has a great article from Lee Marple and Shawn, you can find the advertisement to compare your shape.

    If you have time, can you please post a pic of what the bottom looks like. I'm sure it is ground flat in spots on the 16? or 12? vertical rib base. Thanks!

    The AGG magazine you want to look for is Vol.2 No.2, btw! :)
