This is a charming antique French faience basket dating to Circa 1900. It has a fantastic shape with its edges at either end folding over as it if were composed of a pliable material. The multi-colored twisted rope handle holds up the center portion. The motifs are colorful floral bouquets interspersed with small flowers and butterflies. The white ground brings all of these motifs to life. The basket is marked on the bottom, A M 17.
CONDITION: Very good condition with minor wear to paint commensurate with age. Minor glaze variations.
