Auction is for a hand woven Sweetgrass Basket in super condition. It is huge, 20 inches across, 8 inches deep, the circumfrence is 60 inches. I purchased this at an estate sale so don't know what area of the US it originated ,but I have several Gullah sweetgrass baskets from South Carolina and this one is truly a special one. This is a lovely art basket that would make a nice decorator piece with many uses.This has the wonderful sweetgrass scent , these are washable with soap and water so they are remain like new for years. These are the investment baskets of the basket world. Sweetgrass baskets are a tradition originating in West Africa that has been continued in South Carolina and Georgia .These are woven from sweetgrass that grows in the coastal sandunes. This is from a smoke free home. Please view pictures for details.
