Old Aunt Hetty never realized, back in the 30s or 40s when she carried it to, that she had what would be a trendy 21st century industrial style basket. Who knew?  The basket comes complete with its original folding arms covered in their original red rubber tubes. The red rubber goes great with the worn mustard paint on the wire.  We've used the basket for fruit (both stone and fresh), to hold napkins at Picnic Grove, and as a cradle for some old rag dolls.  So versatile, it would serve well for any room from your rosy garden room to your innermost sanctum.

Sturdy original condition with some mild rusting to the body's wires and wear to the paint; some soiling to the rubber covering the handles. Completely serviceable. You can depend on this basket to hold everything it needs to hold. 14"L X 9 1/2"D X 7 1/4"H
