Vintage French Red Metal Basket <p>A vintage French metal basket in fiery red, circa 1960. Asymmetrical construction, ball feet and radiating rods on the bowl display the classic Atomic Era style and energy. A tall, wide handle visually balances the lines of the basket and leaves ample room for stacking items in the bowl. The bowl itself consists of alternating lengths of metal rods applied over a couple of metal loops, spreading out from a center that rests on three long legs ending in large ball feet. It is painted in a rich red to complement its exuberant form. This piece will make a great fruit and vegetable basket, but its size would also lend itself to use next to a sofa or bedside.</p>
