Today we have received a shipment of Nantucket Bike Baskets. The traditional Nantucket basket is called the Classic Lightship. Every Nantucket Bike Basket is a work of art. All the raw materials for the baskets are hand selected for strength and durability and this particular basket is made of a very fine rattan cane. This basket was first produced in the early 1800’s.
If you have been to Nantucket, this particular basket is one you will see everywhere. Folks use them for mail and flower bouquets, as well as their bicycles. The classic lightship shown here retails for $50.
