Nancy Perna | 118 Summit Drive Phoenixville, PA 19460 | 610-506-3857 |



I have been collecting antiques for 35 years. Living in Pennsylvania all my life I was exposed to wonderful things, and my collection has grown over the years. Several years ago I started selling antiques part-time. I participated in about 3 or 4 shows a year and had space in 2 antique shops in Lancaster County, PA. I took a break from selling for several years, and now I've decided to open an on-line shop at Dig Antiques. My interests include things from early childhood, folk art, americana, early smalls, etc. I prefer to be paid by check or money order, but will also take PayPal Friends and Family. PA residents add 6% sales tax. I charge shipping unless otherwise stated. I try to give a detailed description and condition on each item. If you need more pictures or have any questions you can call or e-mail me. If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you may return the item within 3 days for a full refund minus shipping and insurance. Be sure to check all 3 photos on each item listed.

Blue/Green Splint Basket with Handle

Original blue/green painted basket with handle and double wrapped rim. It appears that the splints were painted before the basket was woven. The basket is very sturdy.

It looks like there might have been a few early paint touch-ups to the bottom since the paint is a little shinier in a few spots.
