Most often used for the sale of small fruits, and berries, pottle baskets (or pottles) were the most common means through which an individual would purchase such produce. While a customer would take the pottle basket away with them, they would leave a small deposit with the merchant, being put towards the next pottle, or to cover the cost of the purchase. These pottles would have been purchased in bulk by the merchant, or made by them at home. Pottles are an excellent means through which a person may carry their fruits in a period correct manner, as well as a means through which you may create your own historical impression. Please note, these pottles are being offered on a highly limited basis, once they are sold out, we may not have any more for sale. Should others be listed for sale, they will be in a very limited basis and may not be available until next spring.
When purchasing, please take a look at the images of the pottles and select the specific pottle that you would like to receive (you will be receiving that specific pottle, as these are all hand made by me on a one-off basis).
