This traditional oval basket was the basket design used by butchers shops, and the butcher's boy, to deliver their goods to customers in bygone times. This strong basket is useful today for displaying bread or using as a shopping basket.


Length 54 cm x Width 37cm x 18 cm tall (approximately 34 cm tall with handle. )


All baskets are handmade by John in small batches in his workshop in the market town of Lanark, UK, using only UK-grown willows.

Delivery is £4.95 for this style.

If your desired quantity isn't available online,  or if you need expedited delivery, please contact me to arrange.

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 peeled buff and natural willow bark. Whilst the colours shouldn't be dramatically different,  please allow for some variations in natural materials. 
 All sizes +/- 0.5" or +/- 1 cm
