Green Taconic (Taghkanic) Basket

Green Taconic (Taghkanic) Basket

Original "Bushwacker" baskets were constructed from ash trees in the hills about 75miles north of New YorkCity, during the first quarter of the 20th century. Each Taghkanic basket is constructed in an identical form, sturdy - and a beauty.  Size: 12" diameter, 7" tall.  Swing handle.  Painted an attractive green sometime later in its life.  Very nice condition.
