Scees Bryant Possock, sister-in-law to master weaver Louisa Keyser, was an outstanding basketmaker in her own right. Possock was influenced by Keyser’s work and they often worked side by side. This basket, The Ferns, was made while Keyser was working on Beacon Lights. Possock achieved a perfection of balance and form in the shaping of this small basket. The delicacy of Possock’s stitching and adept design sense is equal to Keyser’s and it is sometimes difficult to distinguish the work of one weaver from the other.
