Baskets in the Nantucket Tradition

Baskets in the Nantucket Tradition

Baskets for your treasures from fabric and pins to yarn and hooks

Hi. My Name is Jane Theobald and I have been making Nantucket style baskets for almost 40 years.  Thank you for visiting my site.  I hope you will enjoy my continued efforts to incorporate the beauty of the origional baskets to the storage functions of contemporary needleworkers, knitters, rug hookers, and women in general.

Pleaes email me at if you have any questions about my work.  I accept  money orders, personal checks, and credit cards through square.

In addition, please look at all photos and descriptions closely, as all sales are final.

This 9” by 4” by 3.5” basket harkens to the whaling days when sailors spent idle hours creating pieces of folk art for their loved ones. The basket is made of various hardwoods. The top is an old piece of mahogany and the whale and stars are carved by me using bone. Please click main image for additional pictures. Also please email me for shipping cost and assistance. Thank you. Sorry. I am very late but this was sold and thank you.
