Interesting Basket

I look at this basket every time I go to Artichoke Annie's antique mall outside of Columbia, MO. It is woven of some type of palm frond-type material instead of traditional white oak. The basket had double lids originally, but all that remains are hinge holes in the handle and metal loops on the rim, where there must have been closure hooks. It’s priced at around $300, so I’ve always passed. One of these days (if it is still there) I may break down and buy it.
