Rare Charleston South Carolina Mary A Jackson Sweetgrass Gullah Gathering Basket
An important South Carolina Sweetgrass basket weaved by Mary A. Please review all the photos for condition and feel free to ask any question. This is jut one of two baskets I have listed by Mary Jackson. Dimensions: 7″ by 5 1/2″ by 2 1/2. Mary was born into the sweetgrass basket community of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. A tradition that originated in Western Africa and has been passed through generation after generation. During the summers Mary would gather with her family in her grandmothers yard and weave baskets, this was not only a good bonding experience, but one that was required for many to make a living. Mary learned the trade young and by the 1970’s she was making baskets seriously with her first solo exhibition at the Gibbes Musuem of Art in 1984. Since then her career has grown dramatically including several shows at the Smithsonian, Philadelphia Museum of Art and the American Craft Museum. She was also awarded the lifetime achievement from the National Museum for Women in Arts and furthermore was also featured in the Five Women in Crafts Exhibition at the Smithsonian’s Reneick Gallery in 2000. Her basket forms have been derived from family tradition passed down, but also some that she started to expirement with including the low basket held in the Smithsonian. As a result of a family tradition and countless hours of hard work, Mary has become one of the most recognized and accomplished sweetgrass weavers of our time. Her baskets have grown greatly in popularity and value, including being kept in prominent collections such as the Smithsonian, American Craft Museum and Collection of the White House. Along with many other public and private collections. This item is in the category “Collectibles\Decorative Collectibles\Baskets”. The seller is “ngfantiques” and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.

This listing is for a scarce book that measures 10 by 7 inches and has 633 pages. It was limited to 400 copies and this one is number 22 signed by the editor. It is a facsimile edition for the state records and that has a 22″ x 19″ folding map in the front cover. The map has a tear with no missing area. The book shows the states proposals to build roads, develop swampland, canals, improve waterways and build a railroad. There is a copy of a letter by Thomas Jefferson thanking someone for a map. NOTE: The issue of slave labor is discussed as emancipation was needed. The state was really not in favor of what was happening and was looking for solutions to stop this practice. Slave trade abolition is discussed on pages 207-215. Also discussed was a proposed settlement back to Africa (later Liberia). Since only 400 books were printed 83 years ago no telling how many remain in private collections. This copy was part of an private collection and is in very good condition. The paper pages are thick and have the unfinished ends like on first editions. This item is in the category “Books & Magazines\Antiquarian & Collectible”.
