Decorative Country Willow Baskets like this were used to take to Sunday pique-niques in France when the weather allowed. Fitted with cloth liners and leather straps to hold plates and assorted tableware for "civilized" eating al fresco, these baskets could be strapped on the back of one's bicycle or vespa. Filled with a bottle of wine, some cheese, and a few loaves of bread, a portable feast to take to the country.
 
Great Vintage Basket, sourced in France, although the owner seemed to remember his parents bringing this home from across the pond {England} on a trip long ago, this has the original leather straps to hold small plates and cutlery on the inside lid. {not included, sorry!} Closes with the original leather straps and buckles. Perfect as storage, to store all sorts of things you want to hide from sight, or simply to display in your French home.  Good vintage condition, it has some wear on the blue part inside the lid, as is to be expected after all these years but nothing major. Measures 14" x 14" x 7".
