This is not just any basket... it is a South Carolina sweetgrass basket.  AND not just any sweetgrass basket...  Back in the early 1980's I did the Longs Park show and exhibited with Mary Jackson and her sister Yvonne Foreman, sweetgrass basket weavers.  
At that time we splurged and purchased a basket, picking one we could barely afford. This one is by Yvonne (sadly not by Mary, if it was Marys it would be worth much more today!!)  Mary Jackson goes on to become a premier weaver (I mean BIG time!) I did many shows over the years with her. Yvonne stopped weaving, anyway I could not find much info on her.  While it would be nice if it had been one of Mary's baskets,  we still cherish it.
