With this basket you get TWO treasures for the price of one! I’ve included an Upcycled Flower Frog and jar to hold your special floral arrangement! The flower frog is one I made from found wire mesh. I made it to fit an old jelly jar\/ drinking jar. The jar fits right inside the basket, and holds it snug so you can carry the flowers or arrange it easily. You can remove the jar or the flower frog and use it for other arrangements. The basket is beautiful all year long, with or without flowers.
Basket is approx 12 inches tall
Flower frog jar is 3.5 “ tall
Basket is Very nice. Sturdy and well constructed. It has held it’s waved top edge and handle shape nicely, considering it’s 40 to 50 years old.
I will charge actual shipping costs at time of sale. Any over charges will be refunded to your Paypal account.
At one point I was tempted to take the basket apart and use the BEAUTIFUL vintage beads. But, I find it too hard to do…someone somewhere in the past made this pretty basket and I can’t take apart their one of a kind piece of art. Fill this full of vintage Easter Eggs or decorations and ENJOY!
Here is some additional found info on
“What it is: BEAD-AND-PIN BASKET?"
Little Bo Peep-style decorative baskets made of beads and safety pins became extremely popular in the United States during the 1950s, when there was a resurgence of the crafts movement. Safety pins were inexpensive, and colorful glass or plastic beads were widely available at variety and craft stores. Their combination led to ingenious and colorful creations. As these charming pieces have emerged from basements and attics, interest in them has grown.
