This is a most unusual basket because the weave is unique. The weaver used three strips of wood to weave this basket. Normally only one strip is used. It was entirely made by hand.
Baskets like this come from the Perigord region of France and are becoming very rare. I have some now but don't know if I will find any more.
This basket is large and measures 18 inches long by 14.5 inches wide by 5 inches high.
It has many uses and is very decorative.
