If you love old photographs and you love Peterboro Baskets, you won’t want to miss out on the first member of what promises to be a very special family of collectible baskets.
We are proud to introduce the limited-edition Peterboro Basket Historic Series with this commemorative H.B. Needham Basket. Renowned as the “dean of basket manufacturers” Henry B. Needham was monumental in our company’s rich history. Taken from our photo archives, the image of 12 of his workers standing in a 34-bushel basket as Mr. Needham looks on from the steps of his Peterborough factory is engraved onto a hand-cut smooth wooden lid.
The inside lid is engraved with a brief description of the depicted historical moment. Our signature logotype is branded onto the outside of the dual split lid. Both lid pieces are attached to the sturdy center wooden support using two durable leather hinges. Hand-crafted using our ½-inch weave, the deep oval basket has an arched stationary handle that’s double riveted for extra strength and stability. With its generous capacity, you’ll find countless ways to use this distinctively unique Peterboro creation.
A Certificate of Authenticity is included to assure you of a genuine limited-edition article. Each one is individually numbered, dated, and hand-signed by one of our master crafters. With only 500 of the Historic Series H.B. Needham Baskets produced, this basket is destined to become a rare collectible that will increase in value.
Please note, at the special introductory price, we must set a limit of 2 baskets per customer.
