This rustic old wicker basket is stunning. Complete with rope handles, heavy metal hinges and leather details.
Many, many years old, we believe it was used in a ship's laundry.
It is stamped with N.A.A.F.I meaning the Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes. It was a company created by the British government on 9 December 1920 to run recreational establishments needed by the British Armed Forces, and to sell goods to servicemen and their families. It runs clubs, bars, shops, supermarkets, launderettes, restaurants, cafés and other facilities on most British military bases and also canteens on board Royal Navy ships.
It would be wonderful as a blanket or toy box, or even converted into a coffee table.
Please note that due to the size of this piece shipping is by custom shipping quote only. Pick up from our Noosa Warehouse always welcome.
