A detailed hand made antique basket believed to be a pigeon basket (though that is our guess.) Large and solid, the lid opens to reveal storage for just about anything.
We love to look at it. It is a work of art as far as baskets go. Woven splints of wood with nail heads. Beautiful patina. Weighty. Primitive and folk art all rolled into one great looking collectors piece.
Original top metal handle and hinges. The basket has its original finish and has a lot of beautiful character. Minor surface wear. A small area of chipped woven pieces as shown in photos.The front closure clasp is missing from its attached holder.
