This is a fine weave basket in the shape of an acorn. Frey uses natural braided cedar to add color and texture to the natural colored ash basket. The ring enables the basket to stand upright or at a slight angle. This basket looks and feels beautiful!

The use of cedar not only adds color and texture; it also is an alternative weaving material for basket makers who are intent on preserving brown ash in light of the infestation of the Emerald Ash Borer beetle. This insect had devastated ash trees across the northern sections of the U.S., and threatens to wipe out entire populations of these trees.

Size: 5 1/2″ high, including stem; 4 3/4″ diameter

Materials: brown ash, cedar.
