Unraveling the Mystery of Leather Key Baskets

Events

Art Museums Admission Required

Leather key baskets have long been considered an early 19th-century folk art specific to Virginia and North Carolina.  However, there has been little to no research done into contextualizing these objects and separating fact from fiction. The Public Leather Works wants to share the research we have done into these items and how they fit into the landscape of 19th-century Richmond life.
