Decorative Country Willow Baskets like this were used to take to Sunday pique-niques in France when the weather allowed. Filled with simple cloths, plates and assorted tableware for "civilized" eating al fresco, a bottle of wine, some cheese, and a few loaves of bread, a portable feast was ready to take to the country.
Great Vintage Basket, sourced in France, one side opens to the interior space. Perfect for storage for all sorts of things you want to hide from sight, or simply to display in your French home. A great way to enjoy the beautiful outdoors this season, even if you only carry it to your back garden for lunch! Good vintage condition, it has some discoloration on one side as shown, and the top doesn't quite shut all the way down after decades, to be expected after all these years. A fabulous addition to your basket collection. Measures 16" x 12" x 12"h.
