A Tisket, A Tasket, Of Course, It’s a French BASKET!

Just a quick post to share this wonderful 1920s French basket that came from a lovely shop on Etsy named Sunday Brocantes.  Please take a moment to visit Cat and her lovely blog. She’s from the U.S., married to a French guy, lives in Normandy, and has a great “eye” for tresors!

My basket is a nice large size at 18” H and was probably used for cut stalks of lavender as the bottom is concave.

I fell in love with Cat’s photo of this basket in her Etsy shop.

It’s in such wonderful condition for it’s age and the different colored banding is awesome.

Vintage Whimsical Basket

The French use baskets for everything.  Baskets possess such beauty in their utilitarian form and become more cherished the more they are used and loved.  There’s just something romantic about a French basket.  A staple in French Country décor—n’est-ce  pas?

Au Revoir,

Kim
