Wicker and Husk Baskets

Hand woven baskets in a wide range of shapes and sizes are collected in Central and Eastern Europe. The dates of manufacturing are roughly between the 1930’s and 1970’s though this is not a product that can be dated with great precision. They are made from wicker, corn husk and occasionally rush. Nearly all typologies are related to the containment and carriage of food: bigger baskets are more likely to have served a purpose related to farming, smaller ones are more commonly domestic bread and fruit baskets or pic-nic baskets. Some very large specimens were traditionally used for different purposes such as holding wood by the fireplace.
