Title: Albra Lord basket, Lovell. ca. 1900
Contributor: Lovell Historical Society

This woven basket was made in Lovell, Maine by Albra Lord. It has a handle made out of wood. The top two strips on the inside of the basket are blue and red. There are two rivets on the handle. Albra Lord made baskets from brown ash, pounding the strips of wood until the growth rings separated. His baskets became well known in the area, and he once turned down an offer from a Detroit hotel for 40 baskets, saying he could sell all the baskets he made locally for $1.25 each.
