Vintage chippy rusted wrought iron planter metal basket French Country jardiniere rustic decor

$59.00

I rescued this old heavy wrought iron basket from the estate of an elderly woman whose yard had been abandoned and left for weeds a good decade ago, this metal basket set off to the side, filled with dried leaves and a single forgotten hand rake. It was the kind of piece that made you feel as though you've stumbled into a French country garden. Or a garden in the Italy countryside. Or the mountains of Spain. Or an old home in northern New Mexico. The square basket is heavy and super rusty, the white paint chipped and covered with rust (did I mention the rust???). The piece is incredibly heavy, and I want to stress, this is exactly what most Hobby Lobby or Michael's reproductions today try to approximate yet fall woefully short of doing so. You will see when you feel it. The handles do not lay flat, as this is not a machine made piece. They are not perfectly symmetrical. This is the kind of piece that will add authenticity to whatever garden it graces. Fill the basket with dried pomegranates for a stunning Christmas centerpiece, or with the heads of pink roses in spring. Or place a potted geranium (you'll need a square pot) in it for a country cottage look.

The basket stands about 9-1/2" tall and 9-1/2" square, closer to 15" across handle to handle. This is a heavy piece, weighing over 8 pounds unpacked. Fabulously chippy condition.

Rustic. Elegant. Old World.
