While visiting an antique mall in western NY this past week, I found a unique woven reed baby basket/stroller.   In researching this I found the Oriole Go Basket was made by a company in Cincinnati, Ohio called the Winthrop Mfg Co.  They made a number of wicker furniture pieces including porch swings, adult sized chairs, work baskets, and accessories for the Oriole Go Basket.  The accessories included a storm covering for the basket/stroller, a leather parcel carrier, sun shade, and a stand with a spring for bouncing the baby in the basket.   And I thought these accessories were recent inventions!

The Oriole Go Basket was dated in the posters I found online in the early 1900's (1905, 1907).    The ad posters seem to run around $20-30 in prime condition.  I don't recall the price for the Go Basket I saw, but I am curious if others have seen this wicker baby item.  Share what you know and we will all be blessed. 

I work in wicker restoration because I know these are truly American made products.  This is evidence of that.  If you know other US companies that produced wicker products, then and now, I am all ears.
