Lot Essay

Wall pockets were often hung by looms and used to store weaving and sewing supplies. They are also referred to as comb or spool baskets. This form of basket was first produced on the upper Housatonic river. They were later made in miniature size for tourists. For further information see Ann McMullen and Russell G. Handsman, A Key into the Language of Wood Splint Baskets (Washington, CT, 1987), p. 23.
