Rare to find, beautiful although a bit shabby French Tole Peinte Bordeaux Red Wine Basket or Holder, meant to display and tote two bottles of France's best vintage. Dark red color, with a hand painted decorative gold stripe on both the top and bottom. Footed design, this is an intriguing accent to display and use with your wine collection.
Signs of wear and areas of paint loss as shown, I have really upped the contrast so you can see the losses, in "real life" especially on the front the loss is much less noticeable. It's a lovely piece of French toleware history, and fantastic for your French Country home. Holds two bottles.
