Early 20th Century French Basket

About

An early 20th century French handwoven willow winnowing basket with two twisted loop handles and a wonderful patina. Winnowing, in its simplest form, involves throwing grains of wheat into the air so that the wind blows the lighter chaff away, leaving the heavier grains to fall back down into the basket.
