Double lidded basket, Joan Rankin, IGMA, 1991

$90.00

SKU: MLP51

A fine double lidded basket by the late Joan Rankin.  She was at least an IGMA Artisan; I don't know if she made Fellow or not.  Intricate and tightly woven, with dual opening lids with handles.  I noticed after I took the photos that the handle shows as slightly depressed in the centre - this is now corrected and the handle is straight. 

The original label is included.  It was sort of stuck to the bottom of the basket with lots of blu-tack, which I have cleaned up to the best of my ability.  I've seen photos of another basket in the same condition so I suspect that that is how Joan attached her labels but over time the tacky gets rather oily.

1 11/16 inches (4.3 cm) wide, 1 1/2 inches (3.8 cm) deep and 1 5/16 inches (3.3 cm) tall.
