Very finely made miniature splint egg basket, probably dating to the mid-19th century. Found in Virginia and could have been used to house keys. In remarkably good and sound condition with only a couple minor splint breaks. One of the nicest little baskets we have ever seen. Only 6"L x 3 7/8"W x 2 3/4"H and apprx 4 ¾" H to top of handle. (CK-34)
