Vintage Berea College Hearth Broom

Vintage Berea College Hearth Broom


A vintage handmade Berea College Student Industries hearth broom. The broom has a woven handle with an intricate design from the natural fibers that is attached through wire and corded wire braces. The natural fibers of the piece have been dyed a strkingly beautiful red color. The original tag is attached “Berea College Crafts, Berea, Kentucky.” There is a corded strap at the top of the handle for hanging.

The bristles are cut across evenly on the bottom but the weaving design carries up the handle at an angle. Between the color and the craftsmanship this is a great piece of vintage Americana!
