Our Story

Own a piece of American History.

In the mid 1800's, men serving on the lightships off the coast of Nantucket, Massachusetts, began weaving these beautiful and useful baskets to pass the time during their long days at sea.

Today the Nantucket lightship baskets represent a proud tradition of American craftsmanship and are recognized throughout the world for their beauty.  They are considered to be an exquisite and usable collector's item that can be passed down from generation to generation.

The baskets presented here are completely handmade on molds with hardwood bases and handles and brass nails in the manner used by the early lightship sailors.  Each of these baskets is a piece of art in itself and is an exquisite addition to any table or shelf.
