Charming Vintage French Wicker Log Basket ~ Lovely Curves ~ Rustique Rural Chic For Sale
A really charming vintage French log basket. Hand woven from wicker ithas a most lovelycurvey shape .. Gently rounded at the sides, both ends are lower than the middle part for carrying the longer logs.
It has a double twisted wicker handle .. in fact two handles which come close together in the middle so you hold both together in one hand.
The basket is 25cm (10") deep .. at the deepest part ..33cm ( 13") wide and 48cm ( 19") long.To the top ofthe handles it stands 38cm ( 15") high.
It is in nice vintage condition but does show signs of its history withthree or fourbroken strands in the weaving and one of the whippings which previously held the handles together near the rim is missing. It is however still a very strong and usable basket which will give many years of service yet!
I have not washedthe basket because washing would remove the age darkened patinabut I havegiven it a stiff brushing to remove dust and collected debris.
A lovely practical and genuine French piece which will look perfect filled with logs or fir cones next to an open fire or wood burner Equally delightful for vegetable storage in the cuisine.
