Storage Solution: Vintage Wicker Baskets
Sturdy baskets were essential equipment in Victorian mills and used to transport and store materials. The durability of wicker means many old baskets still survive. Some feature cast iron wheels for easy manoeuvring, while others display their original lettering. These large vintage specimens could be repurposed for the home to hold anything from chopped wood, to children’s toys or bathroom laundry.
