Antique Brownfield Candy Co Springfield Mo Wood ½ Bushel Basket W/lid:
Old "Brownfield Candy Company Springfield Missouri", wood ½ bushel basket with lid. The basket measures 11½" with lid on, 14" wide on top four sides tapering to 11½" wide at four bottoms. The lid was made for this basket as it will only fit on one way. The top rim is put on by brass rounded tacks with the rest of the basket being put together with little tacks. Do not know if the wire is original to the basket or not. This basket was mailed through the post office to Melbourne, AR. The lid does have a small place where it looks like a rodent could have chewed on it, see picture, otherwise a great old basket.
