This basket with stout white willows is traditional to UK apple growing regions such as here in the River Clyde valley. This strong basket with a thick rim was used by fruit merchants for apples and was given the name 'Covent Garden Sieve' after the famous fruit market - A unique storage basket option for shelving in your kitchen.
Width 17" x Height 8.5"
Width 43 cm x Height 22 cm
All baskets are handmade by John in his small workshop in Lanark, UK, using only UK-grown willows.
Delivery is £7.95 for this style.
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 'white' willow bark. Whilst the colours shouldn't be dramatically different, please allow for some variations in natural peeled willow colours.
All sizes +/- 0.5" or +/- 1 cm
