Basket. Description: Small willow with handle, kidney-shaped. From the History Information Station: Object: Woven willow basket. History: Baskets were frequently used to carry vegetables harvested from the garden, and to carry eggs from the hen house or items from the cellar into the kitchen. Very few household goods were sold in packaging of any sort, so baskets were handy for shopping as well.
