This is a beautiful, late 19th century, burnt wood, waste basket.
Hand crafted, pyrography wood panels are laced together at the corners with a square, wood bottom. Two sides display the image of an Alphonse Mucha style, art nouveau woman with a red poppy flower . The other two sides show painted red / orange poppies with green leaves and stems.
Pyrography, the art of burning designs into wood with a heated instrument, was a very popular craft from the 1880's to the 1920's.
Measures approximately 10-1/2" across the top, 7-1/2" across the bottom, x 18" tall to the tallest point.
Waste basket is in good condition for it's age. There is some wear noted, scratches and scuffs especially on the edges and corners. Please refer to above pictures for more detail. The original corner lacing has been replaced with various materials that could easily be replaced with matching leather or other type of cord.
Would make a perfect container for yarn, throw blankets or even towels.
