The classic oval shape of this hand made wire basket is embellished with carefully chosen sea shells that remain in perfect condition. A vintage French example circa 1920 of the perennial allure of the sea every surface of this basket showcases the oval shape of each individual sea shell. Please notice the interesting shading of the colour of the various shells from the lightest cream to shades of pink and caramel. The body of the basket has a flared shape that opens outward with a tall handle wide enough to accommodate a pattern of the sea shells. Because the basket is finished on all sides it is best displayed upon a table surface where its beautiful quality may be admired from every direction.
