Nantucket Baskets

Nantucket lightship baskets symbolize tradition, the mystique of the sea, and a unique blend of beauty and quality workmanship. The first Nantucket baskets were created by the Native Americans who lived on the island of Nantucket.

All baskets incorporate rattan weavers (horizontal weave) with staves (vertical weave) of either oak or rattan. The extreme tightness of the weave is the hallmark of an accomplished Nantucket basket weaver.

The exotic hardwood tops may be personalized with an ivory plaque of your choice.
