Superb Antique French Grape Harvesting Basket, made from woven wicker with two handles, these baskets have wonderful patina to the wicker with original paint colour, distinguishing the Vineyard. Place of origin France, Circa 1900.
Know as 'paniers mannequin' in France, these large wicker baskets were used for collecting the grapes from the vines and then carried back to the press. Due to the size of these and the weight of grapes that they would have held, they are very well made. Fabulous character and patina perfect as a log basket.
