4 Claims.
end of the basket and the strips are nailed or
otherwise secured to the wall members. 'I'he wall
members are likewise provided with inclined
paragus and the like, it being especially adapted
braces "l and 8 extending diagonally between the Í
same and secured thereto, by nails or other means. "
5 for use by the cutter in the ñeld, in that the sprigs
or tips can be easily and expeditiously placed in
the basket after being cut without material
danger of damage or breakage thereto, and the
basket is shaped to automatically bunch or to hold
10 the sprigs in bundle formation, so as to allow
easy cutting thereof to the proper length, when
the basket is full, with the result, that butts,
stems and waste matter can be left in the ñeld,
and thence the sprigs are ready for the grading
or packing shed, when brought from the field.
A further object is to provide an asparagus
basket that is light in weight, easy to handle and
carry, simple in constructions, inexpensive to
manufacture, and extremely efficient in use and

(Cl. 146-1)
This invention relates to baskets, and its gen
eral object is to provide a basket that is primarily
designed for handling and initially bunching as
service.
The wall members are reenforced by vtransverse
strips 9 secured to the confronting faces thereof
adjacent to the lower ends, as clearly shown in
Figures 1 and 3.
opening and the openings extend from adjacent .
the lower ends of the wall members and through
the upper ends thereof. It will be noted from
Figure 2, that the openings are substantially
semi-circular in formation andslightly elongated,
with the greatest degree of curvature'at the lower
portions thereof. The openings of the wall mem
bers are indicated by the reference number Ill,`
and each opening is beveled downwardly from- the
front to the rear of the basket.
n
This invention also consists in certain other
features of Construction and in the combination
and arrangement of the several parts, to be here
inafter fully described, illustrated in the accom
25 panying ydrawing and specifically pointed out in
the appended claims.
In describing the invention in detail, reference
will be had to the accompanying drawing where
in like characters denote like or corresponding
30 parts throughout the several views, and in which:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the basket
which forms the subject matter of the present in
vention.
Figure 2 is a front View thereof.

Mounted in the openings of the wall members
I and 2 and secured thereto in the mannerV to
follow the'shape thereof isa sheet II of reticu
lated material such as wire mesh, and the sheet
II bridges the wall members I and 2 to provide
a closure including curved sides and bottom.
Bridging the openings of the wall members Band
4, is a like sheet l2 of reticulated material to pro
vide curved sides and bottom, and it will be
noted as best shown in Figure 3, that the lower
portions of the openings IIl extend one below the
other in step formation from the front end of
the basket, so that the bottoms of the closures '
provided by the sheets II and I2 are inclined
rearwardly.

Referring to the drawing in detail, it will be
noted that my basket includes two spaced sections,
The rear end of the basket is closed by a solid
wall or back I3 which extends above the _wall
member I, and is secured thereto. The front end
of the basket is open and it will be obvious that
the sprigs of the asparagus and the like are cut 40
in the usual manner and placed in the basket,
with the tip ends innermost, so that wall I3 pro

end section, and each section includes a pair of
45 wall members indicated respectively by the refer
ence numerals I, 2, 3 and 4, the wall members I
and 2 being for the body section and the wall
members 3 and 4 for the end section.
A base frame aids in holding the wall members
50 in proper position, and in a manner whereby the
wall members I and 2 are inclined rearwardly,
and the wall members 3 and 4 are disposed in an
upright vertical position, as best shown in Figure
l. The base frameincludes side strips 5 and
55 strips 6, the latter being disposed at the front
Y
I also provide a handle for the basket, the
handle being of the bail type and indicated by the 45
numerical reference i4 and has its ends reen
forced by collar members I5. The collared ends
of the handle are pivotally secured tothe upper
longitudinal strips I5 of the body section adjacent
Vto the inner ends thereof, through the instru 50
mentality of pivot pins Il. The end section is
likewise provided with upper strips I8 and the
strips I6 and I8 are secured to the wall members, '
as best shown in Figures 1 and 4. The strips I6
and I8 are arranged in engaged'pairs as best 55

> shown in Figure 4, and the upper edges of the
sheets II and I2 may be secured between the pairs
of strips, but in any event the upper edges of the
sheets Il and l2 are fixed, and as shown in Fig
ure 4 are secured to the innermost strips.
It will be notedgas best shown in Figure 1, that
having open ends, said body section having an
open inner end and a closed outer end, the latter
providing the rear of the basket, and the bottoms
and the butt-ends of the sprigs are cut along
the inclined wall member of the body section, so
that all the sprigs will be of equal length. It
will, of course, be understood that the tip ends
15 of the sprigs are disposed in abutting relation
with the front wall I3. When the sprigs are cut,
the portion remaining within the end section and
which are called butts, can be removed from the
basket with the result the butts, stems and waste
20 matter can be left in the field, thence the tips
of the sprigs which remain in the body section
areready for the gradìngvand packing shed, and
can be carried by my basket from the ñeld or
transferred from the basket to a carrying crate
in the ñeld in bundles and carried to the pack~
ing shed in said carrying crate, without fear of
bruising, damaging or breaking the same.
. It is thought from the foregoing description
that the advantages and novel features of the
.35
tions, reticulatin-g material providing the sides
and bottoms of the sections and each section
having an open upper portion, said end section
the end section is spaced Vat a considerable dis
tance from the body section to providebetween
the same, a knife receiving space. When, the
10 basket is filled with sprigs, they bridge the space
.39
`
an end section spaced fromthe body section tol
provide a, knife receiving space between the sec~
invention will be readily apparent.
'
It is to be understood that changes may be
made’in the construction and in the combina
tion and arrangement of the several parts, pro
vided thatsuch changes fall within the scope of
the appended claims.
`

1. A basket designed for handling asparagus
tips and the like, and comprising» a body section,
an end section spaced from the body section to
40 provide a knife receiving space between the sec
tions, said sections >having open upper portions,
said end section having open ends, said body sec«
ftion having an open inner end and a closed outer
end, vthe latter providing the rear of the basket,
45 andV each section having a’rounded bottom in~
, clined downwardly from the front Vto the rear
ends of the basket.
.2.,A basket designedV for handling asparagus
Y tips and the like, and comprising a body section,
being curved transversely and inclined down-v
wardly from the front tothe rear ends of the
