Rustic hand woven French Grape Picking Basket, from the grape region of Loire. Baskets like this have been used for generations to pick grapes, though not on the commercial harvests, when pickers wear the larger hottes.
This basket has some wear, some old worm holes, and a little looseness on the bottom....so only for those of you who love patina and the grace of time. The handle has been worn away, but never mind that, this is a wonderful piece for your collection, to display in your country home, or to use for carrying vegetables from your potager or flower garden. Measures 19" x11" x9"h.
