Description

Wicker wastebasket. The basket is brown with a few spots where the paint is wearing off and a few areas where the wicker is breaking and coming unweaved. The bottom of the basket is woven very tightly and then it is an open weave with a few cross overs forming pointed arches. The top goes back to the tightly woven pattern. There are two handles, one on either side of the basket, they are small handles.
