LARGE MENDED BASKET

Magnificent mended basket from Illinois. This is undoubtedly one of the best examples of mended Americana we've ever seen. This large field basket rom the 19th century measures 20" by 15" by 15" tall. It was saved by carefully hand stitching an early blue and white coverlet to the rim. The coverlet was then pleated and seamed to fit the shape of the basket. This piece has been in an old Illinois collection for years and is being offered here for the very first time.
