This basket is about 12 by 15 inches, with a depth of 6 inches. I think it's a bread basket because the almost-lacy double-woven border at the top looks like it might be meant to secure a tea towel or napkin between its layers. Condition is excellent for it's very old age. It is used but not abused: it has a rich patina. Could be used for a photo prop. These French woven baskets don't have built-in obsolescence, which is their only flaw.
I am happy to answer any questions, just convo me!!
