A Nantucket basket is a type of lightship basket originating from the island of Nantucket, Massachusetts. The round cherry handle is a specific type of handle used in the construction of these baskets, typically made from a single piece of cherry wood that is steam-bent into a circular shape. The handle is then attached to the basket with carved bone. Nantucket baskets are known for their intricate weaving patterns and are considered a traditional art form in the region. Cherry handles are a popular choice for Nantucket baskets due to their durability and strength, and are a must have for your next basket weaving project.
