Great big dark green vintage basket from the 1950s. We call it a bushel basket, but it's actually bigger than a bushel — it holds five pecks instead of a bushel's four.

These were used as field baskets in the nearby orchards, and made strong enough to carry a whole bunch of fresh apples. This one has two wire handles and two wire tabs that held down a lid long ago, strong slats and strapping, and a nice flat base.

In a very beautiful dark, blue green, somewhere between forest and teal. From the vast barn of a former farm nearby. Built, like many items around here, to last.

18" wide at rim
12" high

Excellent condition. Clean, no stains, no damp, not to many flaws at all.
