Antique Primitive Splint Oak Gathering Melon Basket Old and Original. Love this style basket. It just speaks primitive to me. Got to admit, I have a thing for old baskets. Especially dream worthy old baskets like this. The name of the shape is melon. It's an old oak splint weave. Does have a few areas, please see photos. Dates to early 1900's, so nothing major and is still a fantastic piece to own. Nice size of this one is great to decorate with anywhere in your home. Size is 13" x 13" x 11". Old and original.
