This is a quality, attractive & unusual general purpose storage basket for your home. A strong UK fishing industry basket design used to measure the quantity of the catch of herring at the same time as unloading the boats. A very traditional, almost iconic basketwork design of the British Isles that took many years of hard work to learn how to make. Made in a variety of stripped and unpeeled willows along with some split hazel and oak on the sides. Store your items is a UK heritage style with a story behind its design. 

H 15.5" x W 21.5"


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 £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 willow bark. Whilst the colours shouldn't be dramatically different,  please allow for some variations in natural willow colours. The willow colours may be arranged slightly differently in the basket from the illustrative photo depending on the suitability of the willow available at the time of ordering. 
 All sizes +/- 0.5" or +/- 1 cm
