Vintage, Adirondack, Trapper's / Hunter's basket with canvas straps and bent wood handle. This rustic basket is made from woven wood slats, with a wood frame support on the inside bottom. Wooden slats are attached to the double layer, wooden top rim with metal rivets. Canvas straps, wrapped around a dowel rod are threaded through two wooden feet on the bottom and attached to the top rim so basket could be carried on a person's back.
Variations of these well made and sturdy baskets were originally made by Native Americans as far back as 900 BC. Commonly made in Northeastern USA, Maine and the Adirondack mountains of New York. Baskets had a curved "belly" on the front so two baskets could be strapped together and fit into a canoe with curved sides.
Basket measures approximately 14" long x 11-1/2" in width (front to back) x 20" tall not including handle
Basket is in good condition overall with a few minor chips, scuffs and wear consistent with previous use and age. No major structural damage, cracks or missing pieces noted. The canvas straps have some torn areas, as seen in above pictures, but this does not affect the charm of this primitive piece.
Great primitive piece
