Nantucket Lightship Baskets

Small & Mini Baskets:

Bill and Judy Sayle, Ashlie Emery, Janet Carreau, Lucille LaRochelle

Not everyone has space for the traditional sized Nantucket baskets and sometimes we look for a smaller memento of time spent on Nantucket or perhaps something to add to a collection of miniatures. Miniature Nantucket baskets are something one can always find a spot for and are an excellent testament to the talent of an artist and their ability to work at such an intricately detailed level, as they are some of the most difficult to craft. Using different forms and embellishments such as antique whalebone or ivory, artists such as Bill & Judy Sayle, Janet Carreau, Ashlie Emery, and Lucille LaRochelle have created some unbelievable little masterpieces.
