Antique baskets. $95.00 each... Reduced to $75.00 each... OBO

These baskets were used in the fruit and vegetable fields to move products for marketing purposes. A true down to earth workers tools. They were also used to sell chickens and eggs from door to door or market. Chickens in the bottom and eggs in the trays. Yep, now you are getting the picture... Balls and plants not included.

I am not an expert on baskets but these make for a very interesting decor in your home or office. I have 4 each baskets and even though they are old they are in really good condition. Two sets are complete with a basket, tray and lid. The other two sets have just the basket, one tray and no lids. The baskets are 20"W x 26"H. View the photos and you will see that they are in excellent condition for their age.

We found these in an old farm house that was said to be over two hundred years old in Taichung county of Taiwan. The guy I worked with said they haven't been used for longer than he could remember and he was in his fifties. This was over 30 years ago. They were gross looking when we saw them at first then we saw the potential. Years of rain and dust accumulation made it the awful part of restoring them.

If these baskets could talk I am sure they would have a very interesting history to tell us. They are actually awesome.

Down sizing soon and must get some of our decorations to someone who loves this type of decor.
