Vintage Adirondack

Today I found an unbelievable piece of Americana -- an antique & very rustic birch bark basket.  It is quite large and in remarkable condition. Completely hand crafted, probably in the early 1900's, with a hardwood retaining band that is whip-stitched to the bark with its original leather strap.  Can't wait to fill it with winter greens.
