The seller says: "She was the last of the Taconic Hills basket makers of Eastern New York State. She was featured in a PBS special, 'Inheritance,' a one-hour documentary that received many awards. We have produced a 7-minute spin-off, 'Basket Maker,' showing Proper at work, from harvesting a tree, to splitting it, to making a basket. This DVD is supplied with the basket offered here. As one of a handful of hereditary, indigenous American craftsmen, Proper was one of a kind. Her exquisite baskets are notable for their graceful shapes, strength and durability, and classic quality." less
