Vintage 1980’s Longaberger Handwoven Basket mini rocking wood baby doll cradle. This lovely woven wood miniature basket cradle has the “Longaberger Basket Handwoven” printed mark on the bottom.
There are also some letters and numbers on the bottom which I think maybe say “JP” and maybe “85” or “81”? My guess from this is that the date is around 1981 or 1985? I have included close-up photographs for you to decide what this mark is, since I am not sure.
The Longaberger cradle basket measures about 7 inches long, and about 5 ½ inches wide across the top, and is about 5 inches tall.
This hand crafted Longaberger basket is in nice vintage used condition. I gently dusted the basket off, and the buyer may want to clean it a little more. There is some darkening on the wood here and there, especially on the inside bottom floor, and I do not know if this is natural to the piece, or if this is minor staining (see photos)? There are some minor split lines around the top outside and inside wooden bands where the nails are (photos). I do not have any liner for this basket.
This vintage Longaberger basket would be a lovely display piece for small dolls, or could also be used as a planter, or a Holiday candy container. The basket would make a wonderful addition to your country style decorator collection, or a nice gift for that special collector!
