This antique basket belonged to my late Dad and originally came from upstate New York near the Adirondack Mountains. I remember seeing it as a child. I sent photos to an antique dealer in Connecticut and she said it was, most likely, a Taghkanic or Taconic basket. I am not knowledgeable about baskets so I was glad for her information. I am assuming she is correct. However, I received an email from a collector who said,"It is not a Taghkanic basket. I've never seen a Taghkanic with a handle with right angles. The slats on the bottom are not typical either." I really do not know what type of basket this is, other than what I can see. The basket is rectangular with a rigid, carved bentwood handle with the name Clark Salmon printed on it (see photos). The basket is 20" long at the top and 17 3/8" long at the bottom. It is 11 1/2" wide. The basket by itself is 6 1/2" high and with the handle included it is 16 1/2" high. The edges of the basket are rolled or wrapped and about 5/8" wide. The handle is 11 3/4" long from basket edge to basket edge but it actually longer as it extends into the basket and is about 7/8" wide. The price is $75 or Best Offer. I will meet the buyer in Morehead City, NC or surrounding area.
