This basket is the traditional round Fruit Gatherer design which was used in orchards once-upon-a-time to pick all sorts of fruit, such as pears, apples, plums etc. It is made in traditional sizes, degrees of half peck. The handle is of the type made with twisted willow rods, making it almost rope like to form a strong carrying handle. The willow used to make this basket is Flanders Red, grown in Ayrshire, and Black Maul, grown in Somerset.

I try to supply willow colours as close as possible to the natural colours illustrated in the photos above, give or take slight variation in natural willow bark. Whilst the colours shouldn't be dramatically different, please allow for some slight variations in natural willow colours.
