An attractive UK basket design used to measure the quantity of the catch of herring at the same time as unloading the boats. a very traditional, almost iconic basketwork design of the British Isles that took many years of very hard work for me to learn how to make. Made in a variety of stripped and unpeeled willows along with some split hazel and oak on the sides.

H 15.5" x W 21.5"

 

All baskets are handmade by John in his small workshop in Lanark, UK, using only UK-grown willows.


  
Delivery is £7.95 for this style.


  
I try to supply willow colours as close as possible to the natural colours illustrated in the photos above, give or take slight variation in natural willow bark. Whilst the colours shouldn't be dramatically different,  please allow for some variations in natural willow colours. The willow colours may be arranged slightly differently in the basket from the illustrative photo depending on the suitability of the willow available at the time of ordering. 
  
 All sizes +/- 0.5" or +/- 1 cm

If several baskets are ordered, a few can be combined into one Parcelforce fully-tracked parcel where possible at £7.95 for delivery, up to parcel height x girth of 3 metres and/or up to 10 KG. If very many basket are ordered, the shipping rate will reflect how many parcels are needed to fulfil the order.

As well as the making, John attends to all admin and packs and posts all the baskets - please allow 5 - 10 working days for delivery of your hand crafted basket.
