Reed baskets handmade in the 1950s

 "Old Tom's" reed baskets 
handmade in the 1950s 
on Bribie Island

In the late 1950s "Old Tom" Pethers used to make baskets out of reeds with tin bases. Recent memories from the Lind family recalled Old Tom and his baskets and remarkably two of his baskets are still used today!


Thank you to the Lind family for sharing their memories.
