Our Nantucket Lightship Basket charm is crafted in the USA of Sterling silver. In 1840 the US government commissioned
a ship to be outfitted with a light to aid navigation off the island of Nantucket, Massachusetts. The sailors on board
worked for man months. To pass the idle time they took up the art of basket making taught to them by the local indians.
Today, the wood woven baskets have become a collectible handbag commanding high prices. Charm measures approximately 1/2" tall
by 3/8" wide.
