A fabulous, large wicker hamper or laundry basket, dating to around the turn of the 20th century. This super piece is made out of sturdy woven wicker with integrated handles, and iron banding to the hinged lid. It closes with a double-clasped, sliding iron lock. It is fully lined and has an internal wicker tray. It still retains the original runners to the base. The iron locking bar is marked "C Dobson. Basket Maker. Dewsbury". This basket was probably made for use in a large country house. It has great proportions and is very decorative, as well as being useful for storage.
It is in good original condition.

Dogs included in photo for scale.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
