Vintage Rustic French Wooden Box or Trug Ideal for Use as a Housemaids’ Tidy, or Fruit, Vegetable & Flower Basket

1930s antique Meredith Drew glass shop counter advertising display jar

This antique French wooden trug, dating from the late nineteenth or early twentieth Century, has bundles of character.

This rustic wooden carrying basket is perfect for either display or use. Sourced from a French brocante, the wooden trug is simply made, yet very sturdy and perfect for ongoing use around the home.

It is a great size for collecting flowers, fruit or vegetables from the garden. Similarly, it would look great on display inside the home, possibly as a house tidy for cleaning products or as a cutlery tray.

A handmade and rustic piece of simple construction, this wooden trug does show signs of its age with some knocks and dents in places, as well as some cracks and splits in the wood. There are also a very small number of old worm holes on the base, but this is long gone and has been treated.
