​Large Lidded Rye Straw Basket

This is one of the finest rye straw baskets I have ever had the pleasure of offering.  It is a rare oval shape with the original lid and handles.  In extraordinary condition with minor surface abrasions from age and use. One small stain on the lid.  There are wooden cleats attached beneath the base to keep it off of a dirty or damp floor.  You won't find another one like this!  An enormous size measuring 35" wide by 18" deep (at the base) by 18" in height.  A rare thing!
