These sorts of charming wire mesh baskets are perfect for taking to the farmer's market for use carrying things like berries, cheeses, and other things one doesn't want to get crushed inside the big market bag you are carrying on your shoulder! And of course if you are lucky enough to have a chicken coop, they are perfect for gathering eggs. Or carry it as you forage for mushrooms! Plus you can use it as a strainer for washing (and drying) said berries or mushrooms, and then fold it flat to store. Super useful and super chic:)
The handles on this one are covered in cream plastic. Very good vintage condition, with many years of use left in it. 9" across; handles are 6 1/2" tall.
