Group of five (5) signed Woodbury, Tennessee split white oak buttocks baskets by Ida Pearl Davis (Cannon County, TN 1921-2007) and her daughter Thelma Davis Hibdon (b. 1942). All signed in pen under the handles and dated 1993, 1994 or 1995. Ranging in size from 8 3/4" H (including handle) x 9 3/4" W x 8 1/2" D to 16" H x 20" W x 15 1/2" D. Note: The Tennessee Arts Commission website states: "Davis was descended from makers in several prominent basket families in the Short Mountain area. Like many of her age-peers, she learned as a girl, became inactive as an adult while doing textile plant work, then returned to the craft as later years brought new appreciation for it. Davis and Hibdon demonstrated in the Tennessee program at the 1986 Smithsonian Festival of American Folklife." Provenance: consignor purchased directly from the artists. CONDITION: All excellent condition.
