Mystery Item

Do you have any idea what this is? Just to give you some perspective, it is approximately 3' x 3'.

Leave your best guess in the comment section below. The answer will be posted tomorrow.

On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, four colly birds, three French hens, two turtle doves, and a partridge in a pear tree. 


  1. Tobacco Basket ... My Uncle Reece had them of which they graded tobacco by hand then placed a certain amount of leaves together of which they called "a hand" then they took one leaf and wrapped around the "hand" ... they used the basket to carry the tobacco hands to market ... They could also stack one basket upon the other for transport ... They are a nice commodity to have on hand ...

  2. Paula's right - tobacco basket. Remember them well.
