Vintage Cotton Picking Basket, Black Americana, African American Collectable. This particular basket, I believe, is most likely made of strips of oak or hickory. This basket has a diameter of 14 inches and is 8 1/2 inches deep.
The bottom of the basket is rounded. This basket was typically used in cotton harvest in the South.
The vintage cotton picking postcard from Virginia is from the same estate and is part of this package. Check out the wonderful grape harvesting basket that I also have listed.
