This beautiful 19th century tin basket would have been made by a tinsmith for use on the table where air circulation over the contents was desired. The bowl has the look of a wooden or splint basket as well typical of the era. The basket retains much of it's original white painted surface with an excellent patina and surface. There is minor wear and loss to the paint on the high point areas but only as should be expected. The are no cracks, breaks or repairs and the basket displays beautifully.
