Nantucket Lightship Baskets originated in the nineteenth century on Nantucket Island's famous South Shoal Lightship. Captain and crew took to basket weaving to pass the time on board.

By the mid-twentieth century these baskets were being avidly collected by the moneyed yachting set. The passion for Nantucket Lightship Baskets continues into the present century.  Many of our baskets, including those we import, feature Vermont hardwood!
