Hearth Baskets

Hearth baskets have traditionally been used to keep kindling next to the fireplace.

They have an unusual stepped up side that allows the basket to hold long sticks of kindling easily. Nowadays, they are used to keep newspapers and magazines neat and accessible.

My Guarantee

A well made basket should give you years of service, if properly cared for, and used according to its intended purpose. Most of my baskets are made to order. I guarantee the workmanship, and that I have made the basket as closely to your wishes as I could.

Basket Care Tips

Baskets are made from natural materials, and need a certain amount of care to maintain their looks and usefulness.

....Although they are sturdy, don't overload them.
....Baskets need a certain amount of moisture, but don't let them stay in a damp area.
....Mist very lightly once a year or so.
....Keep out of direct sunlight to prevent fading.
....Keep them free of dust and dirt.
....Protect the basket from grease and food by lining with a napkin.
