Baskets from Williams Manufacturing, Northampton, Massachusetts

Williams Manufacturing in Northampton, Massachusetts was known for its fine baskets in the 19th century. A basket was included in the logo for this billhead from 1897.

The Central and Western Massachusetts digital library project known as Digital Treasures, has a nice photo in their archives that puts a "business face," so to speak, on the paper ephemera.
