Item details

Materials

wicker, willow

Large vintage French market or gathering basket. Sturdy design and carefully crafted. Woven construction. Probably willow. Nice vintage patina.
Vintage baskets usually have the odd nick and nibble here and there. This basket is in very good condition.
Great market basket or for harvesting fruit and vegetables but would be equally good to display in the home, with linens or magazines, or maybe to store vegetables in the kitchen.

It measures 22.75" length x 15.5" width x 15.5" height
1265 gram

The French have a special love affair with the basket. Over the centuries, the basket has been used by households rich and poor, in the city and country, carried by men and women: a simple, universal, utilitarian item. The trade of basket making is recorded since the late 11th century in France, and over the ages it became highly specialized within different regions of France and by intended use, including: harvesting grapes (each wine region has their own unique basket shape and name), picking olives and gathering lavender, carrying glasses and bottles, making bread (in baskets with canvas lining); carrying eggs or freshly caught fish (various fish have unique baskets); raising chickens, storing wine (in glass jars covered with basketry to keep the light out); carrying firemen’s water (in a zinc-lined basket); carrying clean or soiled laundry…you get the idea.
