Late 19th Century Folk Art Fisherman's Rope Eel Basket - SOLD
Late 19th Century Fisherman's Rope Woven Eel Basket, circa 1890, a rare hand woven basket apparently unique to the New Jersey coast, with a coarse rope weave on twig staves, with solid wooden bottom, and rope becket handles. These baskets were used to carry live eels (and probably other live bait) for fishing. Only a few of these have been spotted over a lifetime in antiques.
