This is a pair of great vintage French wire egg baskets. They have a collapsible wire lower section and nifty wirework upper section with handles that can be folded back to be used as feet. They can be folded flat - so ingenious! These two are both a lovely metallic green with plastic coated handles. I bought these two beauties together and don't want to separate them.

Condition: They're both in good vintage conditon with a few rust spots and signs of wear on the upper wirework. One has more rust deposits than the other (please see photos)

Dimensions: just under 12 inches (30cm) from the top of the handles to the base when open. The diameter of the base is 5.5 inches (14cm) and the diameter of the top ring with the fold down handles is 9 inches (23cm). Height from the wire ring to the top of the handle is 6.7 inches (17cm).

There are so many uses for a basket like this - it would be wonderful in your country kitchen or use it to collect eggs. Lovely used as storage or display to onions, potatoes, eggs or other veggies. They can also be used it as a salad spinner. Pop your leaves in and give it a good shake! So there you have it, I'm sure you enterprising Etsyians will have ideas of your own...

This listing is for the 2 egg baskets shown, sorry eggs not included!!!

If you wish to make multiple purchases I am happy to combine shipping. Please just convo me for a price. Want another egg basket too? I have another one:
