Richard Silliboy Pack Basket
Richard Silliboy made baskets with his family in his youth. Leaving basket-making behind in his teens, he came back many years later to start afresh. This pack basket is woven from brown ash with nylon straps and copper rivets. It is heavy duty, built for rugged use.
The basket includes heart wood (dark) and sap wood (light) in a very pleasing pattern across all sides. Nylon straps are adjustable
The basket is similar to pack baskets that were made for commercial outlets and catalogs through the 1950s and even 1960s until cloth and nylon frame baskets came into vogue.
