Beautiful find, this Vintage Tole Basket of the soft pink flowers, with leaves and vining branches, was made in Italy mid-century, most likely between the late 1940's - 1950's. Originally designed as a lamp base, there is a hole in the center, these days baskets like this are the darlings of designers and decorators.
White metal basket has rope detail, each petal and leaf was hand made and painted by master craftsmen in Italy. A little shabby here and there, as is to be expected. Lovely detail, display this with your other antique and vintage toleware florals. Marked with the metal Italy tag.
