Lovely antique French collecting basket. A smaller basket probably made for a child to gather fruits or vegetables with Daddy. A few woodworm holes (it has been treated). Nice typical shape with a bentwood handle. A few nicks and nibbles to be expected with a basket of this age but still in good shape. Great basket for a collector.

It measures 13.5" length x 9" width x 7" depth or 34cm x 23cm x 18cm
10oz or 285 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.
