Gorgeous basket, gorgeous patina. This antique egg basket is made of fine mesh-style metal wire. It's softer to the touch than most egg baskets, so it's perfect for berries and fruit. I'd love to hang this on an old hook and display a favorite succulent, or a small pot of flowers. These beautiful baskets are becoming very hard to find. Lovely condition, beautifully aged. Measures approximately 9.5" in diameter.
