Vintage Early to Mid 20th Century English Wire Mesh Collapsible Basket – Ideal for Eggs

vintage early mid century english wirework mesh collapsible basket egg storage collection

A lovely vintage collapsible wirework and mesh basket, ideal for use to collect eggs or flowers in.

This wirework basket dates from the early to mid 20th Century. With an ingenious design, it lifts up to full size when needed, and collapses down at other times. It’s a great item to use around the home and garden, perhaps to collect eggs or flowers in.

It is in excellent condition for its age. The handles show a small amount of wear. There are also some small patches of oxidisation to the base of the basket but otherwise it is all quite clean and is in perfect working order.

It’s a great decorative item which could be put into many uses around the home. Most notably, though, it’s an ideal large size to hold eggs fresh from the hen house.

Length, 36cm; Width, 26cm; Height, 27cm extended; 5cm when collapsed
