Pounded-Ash Apple Basket (Sold)

Sold - No Longer Available
This restored old apple basket is made with hand-pounded Black Ash, originally made in the late 1800ís. It was probably stored on the floor of an old barn, because the bottom was coated with mud and beginning to rot out. The rim lashing was completely gone, with the top held together only with binder twine. Now restored, the basket is lashed with Shagbark Hickory inner bark, with the original Oak rim and handles, and most of the original Ash spokes and weavers. The bottom is repaired with new Black Ash splints, also hand-pounded. Restoring this wonderful old basket enables it to continue being as well used as it was meant to be.
