Vintage Thimble Basket

This is a antique hand woven thimble basket, probably from a Shaker Community in New Hampshire.  It is in perfect condition.   As you can see it is very small.  It measures 1 inch in length, 1/2 inch across the bottom and 3/4 inch across the top.  The top fits nicely and comes off easily.

Wow, this is really neat! I have seen very small woven basket-earrings here in Jämtland (Northwestern Sweden) made by the Lapp people. I wonder if they make thimble baskets too? Thanks for showing!
