This finely woven melon basket was found in Alabama and is a true Southern beauty. Made of white oak, it features a decorative course of narrow grapevines in various natural shades of brown that add an extra touch of artistry to one side of the basket. The handle is composed of three peeled grapevine branches that are expertly twisted and fastened to the body with large, well done God's Eyes.
