B255 - SOLD
This is a sublime vintage French sewn straw basket with raffia flowers on the lid. It dates from about 1950 and has survived the years in fabulous condition. It is of substantial size and would be lovely for sewing or keepsakes.
The basket is oval in shape and has a lift off lid. The raffia flowers are beautifully sewn onto the lid and are in lovely shades of peach and cerise. They grow from a central stem with leaves in two shades of green.
The basket looks like it has never been used. The natural straw is in perfect condition and the raffia flowers are pristine and vibrant.
This is a real treasure of a basket and is as beautiful as it is useful.
It measures 46.5 cm (18 inches) L X 23 cm (9 inches) W X 16 cm (6.5 inches) H
It can be seen in our shop in Frome, Somerset.
