Exquisite antique Victorian sewing basket or box made in Germany of braided straw and woven wicker, with hand-blown glass beads in a geometric design on top. The top features a rectangle of tightly woven wicker, with a border of straw alternating with a metallic ribbon. The edges are covered with braids, and the metallic ribbon-straw trim is repeated on the bottom of the basket.

The lid is attached with hand-made coiled spring hinges. The inside is lined with mustard silk, with padding on the lid and pleats on the bottom. The lid is held in place with two twisted rope cords.

The basket's wooden bottom is covered with paper (I think) printed to look like wood, with Germany stamped in the middle.

Two loops of wicker form handles on the sides, and other two are used to latch the lid in front.

This is an exceptional basket, in exceptional shape, dating probably to the early 20th century. The wicker and braids have just a little wear around the edges. The inside is a little dirty and has a few small snags, as well as some pin pricks on the inside lid (pincushion). One of the wicker handles is not attached anymore, but the latch still works like it should.

Size: 11 x 7 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches (28 x 19 x 11.5 cm)
