Fantastic French Market Basket found in the Provence, with an unusual and rare shape. Baskets like this were used to take to the daily round of shopping in the village. Just big enough to hold the daily meal shopping, milk, eggs, butter, vegetables and meat, perhaps a bottle of wine, the sturdy handle was held tightly under the arm. This basket is masterfully woven by hand, around the sturdy splint frame.
Display this with your collection of antique baskets, use to gather flowers and vegetables in your potager, this beauty offers portable storage for books, a bottle of wine and a treat to take under your apple tree for a relaxing few hours of reading too. Measures 12" x 8~1/2" x 16"h.
