Wonderful Splint Gathering Basket by Rouse Matteson (later changed to Matterson), (1853 – 1936), Saunderstown, Rhode Island, circa Early 20th Century. Matteson was a house carpenter in his early career and a salt water fisherman later. Basket making began as a sideline and later became a primary focus of his life. (Additional information is available to the buyer.) This Gathering Basket displays an interesting use of Oak or Ash woven together Half Round Willow Splints, giving the outside a “wicker” look and the inside a typical splint look. The Basket has a “kicked in” bottom form, a “double wrapped” rim, and a hand carved handle with cut joints for the rim. It measures 10”+ in diameter at the rim, 6 ½” at the base, and 6” in height for the basket and a total of 11’ in height, including the handle. It is in Near Excellent Condition for its age with only very minor wear.

Wonderful Dome Top Grain Painted Table Top Box, circa 1820s – 1840s. Painted in a Faux Birdseye Maple Finish the Box is Lap Cornered with Cut Nail Construction.

The Interior of the Box is Divided into Two Parts of Unequal Size for Separate Items. The Patina is Especially Appealing in its Reflection of Age and Use. A working key for the existing lock would make an excellent addition. Measurements: 16” in width (lid 16 5/8”), 8 ¼” in depth (lid 9”), 7” in height on center.
