The recent introduction of our Historic Series with the H.B. Needham Basket was met with an overwhelming response from collectors. (Of the total 500 baskets produced, a small quantity is still available. Order yours by clicking here).
Now, we are pleased to unveil the second basket in the collection – the Peterboro Historic Series Carriage Basket. If you appreciate photos from a bygone era and you treasure Peterboro Baskets, you’ll definitely want to own this second member of what is destined to be a very special family of collectible baskets.
From our archives we’ve chosen a circa 1910 photograph depicting a horse-drawn carriage loaded with baskets on its way to the Freight Office on Elm Street in Peterborough. The gentleman at the reins is believed to be Henry Needham, owner of the company when this picture was taken.
The image has been artfully etched onto a round plaque of natural cherry wood that is pin-nailed onto the basket’s solid light-blonde ash wood lid. The inside lid is branded with our signature logotype and laser engraved with a brief description of the depicted historical moment.
For this extraordinary lid, we’ve created a basket that’s equally exceptional. Crafted with ½-inch weave, it’s round at the top and square at the base. To give it added strength and stability, thin rigid wood boards are attached to the basket’s base, on the inside and outside. The nail heads on the outer bottom are covered with felt pads to protect surfaces.
A tumbled-smooth swing handle makes for easy, one-handed carrying. To further enhance the Carriage Basket’s utility, a removable custom-molded food-safe plastic protector insert is included. When the lid is securely in place, it creates airtight storage with the plastic insert inside the basket. Perfect for keeping treats for people or pets fresh and tempting!
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 Carriage Baskets produced, this basket is destined to become a rare collectible that will increase in value.
But don’t wait – this item is sure to be a sell-out. Please note, at the special introductory price, we must set a limit of 2 baskets per customer.
