The Ciseog / Skib


Another traditional Irish Heritage basket. Once used for serving the potatoes, the basket could be made as large as the family required and used to strain and serve the potatoes, it was the dinner table and each member of the family sat around the dish, took a potato, dipped it into the butter placed in the centre and ate.

The basket was then rinsed clean and hung beside the fire to dry, becoming an integral part of the famines furniture. Each region of Ireland has its own design marking its origin.

This one being the Joyce country Ciseog, shown by its centre windows. Each piece has variable colouring and is unique. The Ciseog baskets are available in the following sizes: 12″ and 18″.
