For many years John has been researching several of the UK Fishing industry traditional baskets. This Washing Maund has an ‘openwork’ fitched base is a particular favourite of his and was used in the hey-day of UK herring fishing. This style was used in coastal fishing communities up & down the UK during the kippering process to wash split herring.


Made in peeled white willow & hazel.
