These little darlings are by Bill and Judy Sayle, incredibly talented and well-known Island weavers. All of their collectible baskets are meticulously hand crafted in perfect proportion and these certainly qualify with their tiny handles to the use of fine rattan and fine staves. Pictured here we have two types: a basic miniature oval basket as well as a miniature cobalt lined salt cellar, each available with basic oak swing-handle or embellished with an ivory overlay handle.
Prices start at $450.
