Pair of 19th Century American Potato Baskets

About

A lovely pair of 19th century American handwoven oak splint potato gathering baskets, found in Northern Michigan, with wonderful patina, each with two handles and wide straps sturdy enough to support the weight of a basket full of potatoes. The handle cut-outs, at first glance, appear to be broken, but they were designed this way. The side splints are bent and woven back on themselves, and the central splint (upright) has a slight bevel to allow fingers to move freely without scraping against the wood. We think these would be excellent tucked under a console table in an entry, and filled with gloves, scarves, etc.
