19th Century French Wrought Iron Laundry Basket with Handles



An unusual item we picked up in the Southwest of France, this 19th century handmade laundry basket is a beauty. Featuring all handmade wrought iron with riveted construction, it has two handles for easy transport and is in beautiful condition. It does need a liner for laundry, but we will throw in a French antique linen sheet so you can have your seamstress run one up for you. Perfect in a hallway for holding scarves, gloves and hats, in your laundry room, or by the fireplace for logs and kindling. We love it's original rusty surface (that does not bleed onto fabric), but you may want to have it sandblasted and repainted or powder-coated to you specifications. Truly a versatile piece!
