Vintage 1930s Wicker Waste Basket with Folk Art Painting; Antique Rattan Trash Bin

Sorry, this item has sold.

Here's an absolutely charming vintage wicker wastepaper basket in very good condition! It dates from the 1930s and was found in an old farmhouse here in Western New York the same week we listed it here! This is a finely woven basket that has a graduated shape and sort of a square profile. It's round at the opening with two cute, little handles; the bottom is square, measuring 6" by 6". The opening is 11 5/8" in diameter while the entire piece is 11 inches high. All four sides are whimsically decorated with a leafy floral pattern in old, probably original, paint. It's very well-preserved and is solid, tight, and sturdy. Looks like a couple tiny rim pieces missing but not really a detracting flaw. See the photos to see what a nice, old wicker piece this really is! It's a nice item to put a flower planter in! You'll love it!
