This is the perfect basket, or panier. A lovely, large hand woven gathering basket. Gathering baskets were used for collecting fruit and vegetables or flowers from the garden, however, they are really a multipurpose basket, holding anything from towels to display in your bathroom to using it for plants. It's up to your imagination!
As a custom with a gathering basket, you'll find a raised ridge in the middle of the basket, perfect to keep different fruit or vegetables separated!
This basket is in great condition, very sturdy with a reed handle. Rustic elegance for any home.
The basket measures 40 cm length x 29 width x 27 cm height.
Sourced from Normandy, France.
