This is a one-off, unique, French gift hamper filled with vintage French kitchen items.
Thoughtfully curated with a host of stylish, genuine French vintage, kitchenware it would be the perfect gift for Francophiles and lovers of all things French and Vintage.
Ideal for rustic farmhouse kitchen style interiors it is brimming with a selection of Seventeen carefully curated delights.
The contents are contained within a gorgeous, antique, oyster basket measuring 41cms/ 16¼" long x 32cms/ 12½" wide x 17cms/ 6¾" deep. Sometimes called a buttocks basket, because of its shape, this beautiful old basket has been handmade from natural twigs and over the years has aged to a soft, loose weave. Years of gathering oysters in salt water have resulted in some broken strands and it now has a fragility that means it can only be used for decorative purposes, Hence it is perfect for displaying. It is 24cms/ 9½" tall to the top of the handle.
Six, vintage, wooden spoons, they are all different from each other and vary in size, the largest spoon measures 32cms/ 12½" long, the smallest 20cms/ 7¾". They are all in genuine, vintage/antique condition, as you can see from the photos. They have been used for years in kitchens of provincial France. They are all still perfectly solid and usable and the 'wear' gives them a genuine authenticity and charm.
Please take a good look at the photos to see cracks, splits, burns and wear.
Two, vintage, wooden spatulas, 30cms/ 11¾" long.
One antique, dark, solid wood chopping board measuring 29cms/ 11½" long x 14cms/ 5½"" wide x 2cm/ ¾" deep, a truly rustic treasure 'aged to perfection', authentic and original. It has clearly been used in French provincial kitchens, for years, and so has scratches and marks, consistent with its age and use.
