This metal basket would be an amazing little basket for your kitchen! Use it for fruit or a tea towel, it's a heavy duty basket with a great rustic look. It seems that it was silver plated at one time, but most of it has come off over the years, there is a little rust right next to the decorative piece. The handle does move back and forth and since there is no marking and is quite heavy I've seached around and it seems to be from about the 30's. Keep it as it is or polish it up, it will look amazing either way! :)
Handle Height= 5"
