Even the woman "who has everything" probably doesn’t have this! A woven metal basket box, inspired by the iconic Nantucket basket, is perfect for tucking rings and other small jewelry into for safekeeping. The storied tradition of Nantucket lightship baskets goes back more than 150 years, to the crews who staffed the Lightship Station on the Nantucket Island Shoal. These men, who served 30 days at a time on the ship, crafted rattan baskets as a way to pass the time during daylight hours. The craftsmen then gave the baskets to their sweethearts on shore, and eventually began to sell them. The baskets quickly became a treasured symbol of Nantucket life. Here, we pay tribute to the beloved original with our woven metal reinterpretation. The attention to detail in these custom boxes will delight her, with a basket handle that moves and a closure clasp. Her initials engraved on the top make it uniquely hers. Makes a one-of-a-kind accent on her vanity or dresser.
