Very large antique or vintage French wirework champignons or oyster harvest basket


Shipping to United States: $56.19

A charming and unusually large useful vintage or antique panier harvest basket with twisted wirework body and simple turned wooden handle.
Traditionally these baskets were used on the farm to harvest the fruit crops and were also the form of basket used by oyster and mussel gatherers at the coast.
This basket is in relatively good condition, perfectly useable for gathering cut flowers, or collection, display and storage of eggs, fruits, mushrooms, nuts and other kitchen goodies, shopping at the market, or even bathroom soaps & toiletries, office sundries, threads and yarns, crafting supplies... the only limit on its use is your imagination.
The wirework body is patinated with years of use, but the wire and frame are in good condition with only one area where a link has been lost, to one side of the handle, see photo. This does not impact the stability and sturdiness of the basket.

Size approx 34cm high, length 55cm, width 40cm
