Fabulous Rare Victorian Wood and String Shopping Basket

Ingenious, those Victorians! Here's one for the almost-beyond-belief department: a 19th century English carry-all of black cord and ebonized bentwood that's practically a piece of HAND LUGGAGE - and yet weighs almost nothing and even collapses to a size (about 9" x 8 1/2" x 1" thick) that we can store in almost any modern purse. When open, it's MASSIVE: roughly 13 1/2" long, 14" tall and 5 1/2" thick.

This treasure could be the star of anyone's handbag collection but, if you actually want to use it, you can. Astoundingly, it's in fabulous condition, showing only the slightest signs of wear.

Please e-mail for additional photos and be amazed by this rare and wonderful contraption, which I expect will find a home as a fascinating prop for film or stage productions, unless a passionate collector snatches it up first. Thanks for looking!
