Vintage Fisherman’s Wicker Basket
Formerly used on the riverbank, this fine, fisherman’s basket now deserves a place in a warm, dry home! Its dimensions make it a really practical piece for a multitude of things – storage for toys, kids’ craft stuff, underwear, pet sundries, dried flowers, letters, photos – but we like it used as a magazine ‘rack’ (it can accommodate a standard size mag) and as a quirky side table. It’s just the right height to sit by a favourite chair.
Although the original strap is no longer attached, it’s in good vintage condition. The wicker is thick and sturdy, and there have been no repairs. There are some paint marks on the wicker – it was clearly stowed in a shed – but these don’t detract from the piece in any way. They are part of its rustic charm. We have given the basket a clean and thorough dry.
