Very unusual shaped wicker work & seagrass (?) vintage sewing basket. I have based the age on the style and materials but it also contains an envelope with a 1958 postmark which is possible contemporary with the basket. The interior shows some signs of wear as might be expected with a basket this age and one 'button' is missing from the interior of the lid. There is a small biro mark on the padding inside the lid. The construction is sound although one hinge is slightly loose.
