This is turning into a much more involved exercise than anticipated. I have always noticed that baskets, were not highly valued as museum quality examples of Bohemian and Czech glass or as a collectible investment. Yet Victorian and post WWI periods demonstrate a lot of basket production,
Decorative glass was often considered novelties, and baskets even more so, as their size were not conducive to many utilitarian purposes, this was more a cabinet, curio, or display type of object.
