This is a vintage metal clamming basket. We find these rustic metal buckets all over the area due to all the clamming that occurs at New England beaches. This one is a nice example....Standing at approximately 9" tall it measures 15" in diameter at top rim. Has a wire handle and the base is raised approx. 1/4".
The clamming basket has a nice amount of rust, just enough to give it a wonderful patina. The basket has a white vinyl coating which makes it easier to see while working.
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.
