A charming vintage or antique basket with woven twig body which is probably hazel.
This rather wonderfully deep oval basket is a good large size and is in good condition, perfectly useable for collection, display and storage of eggs, fruits, mushrooms, nuts and other kitchen goodies, shopping at the market, or even bathroom soaps & toiletries, office sundries, threads and yarns, crafting supplies... the only limit on its use is your imagination.
Size approx 45cm high, length 38cm, width 26cm
The woven twigs at the top rim have a small break, please see photo of this fault. Other signs of use are entirely consistent with use and age.

*The customer is responsible for any import duties and taxes incurred for an item. If you refuse delivery of an item due to customs costs, please be aware that your parcel's postage costs will be forfeit, although we are happy to refund the item purchase price upon return.
**Please also note that deliveries within France are usually made to a Pont Relais collection point, there are usually a number of these located in shops and supermarkets in each town, and you will be given the opportunity to specify which one you prefer if this service is available for your location. Otherwise I will select the shop with the longest opening hours within your area. Deliveries to other European destinations are generally to your doorstep.
If your destination is not included on our shipping list please feel free to contact me for a shipping quote. We apologise that due to tax complications we are no longer able to ship to UK.
Our items are carefully selected antique and vintage pieces from France and they show the character and charm of years of use. We do not sell new or reproduction items so you can expect to find signs of the age and life that the piece has led. We believe this history adds to the story of an item. Obvious damage and faults will always be mentioned in our descriptions but minor age-related condition issues are not considered a detriment.
