This is such an amazing and rare find! Amazing Antique Huge Garden Trug with Original Paint, traditionally used in the countryside to gather flowers and vegetables from the garden. Made of wood, the basket has a bentwood handle that goes all the way around for stability. The bentwood planks are secured with nails. What I love most about this piece, aside from its sheer beauty and size is that paint that is worn.
Original antique condition, structurally very sound, with a beautiful weathered patina with different paint layers. A find for your collection of antique gardening baskets and tools, to display and use. This is so unusual it stands alone as a work of sculptural art. Use it on your dining room table to hold flowering plants, or vegetables for a centerpiece.
