Basketry tradition continued

This style of rib-framed maple basket has been made by the descendants of women who came to Nova Scotia during the War of 1812. Passed on from mother to daughter, Clara Clayton Gough of East Preston learned this craft from her mother, the late Edith Drummond Clayton (1920 - 1989) of Cherry Brook, Nova Scotia.
