Taghonic Basket

Rare Taghkanic basket used for collection of church offerings (see American Baskets by Shaw at pg. 137).  In excellent original condition.  White oak splint with black ash lashings on rim. Classic Taghkanic construction.  Made in Columbia County, N.Y., circa late 19th century. 8" dia. x 2 1/2" high.  Rim has warped a bit with time, but doesn’t really detract from appearance. (BR-25)
