Product Information
Specification

This vintage French oyster basket dates back to the early 1900s. Founded on a trip to the coast of northern France in a seaside outdoor market/brocante. The basket is made of cast iron. Very sturdy! And very functional for storing quilts, toys, books, kindling wood or for plants. The vintage painted colors found on the sides/top rim were used to indicate the fisherman who owned the basket when pulled from boat to pier; the basket then went to the open markets to sell the fresh oyster catch of the day. Patina due to age and salt water. These are vintage; not reproductions! Basket measures 19.5 inches by 15.5 inches; 10 inches deep. Rectangle design tapers down a bit toward the bottom of the basket. Handles on ends make it easy to carry. Shipped within the USA only.
