This is a fantastic metal smaller clam basket. We find these rustic metal buckets all over the area due to all the clamming that goes on at New England beaches. This example is a great home decor piece as some are too rusty, some are too large, and some have sharp edges. This one is just right....Standing at approximately 9" tall it measures 11.5" in diameter at top rim. Has a wire handle that swings freely.
The clam basket has a nice amount of rust, just enough to give it a wonderful patina. There is nice coiling around the basket that add to the authenticity.
I use these baskets as magazine holders, I've also seen them hold bath towels, and golf balls.
A nice addition to the rustic decor and very useful. The listing is for one basket, please visit my shop for larger baskets.
