Part of a recent haul at a French market, this wooden trug would have been used to collect fruit, vegetables or firewood.
They still make great collecting vessels, but we also love using them as planters in the garden, especially as this one has a distinctive metal handle and is made from very heavy dark wood. Good vintage condition. Wear and tear to the wood consistent with age and vintage.
Number 6 printed at one end, and Bordeaux on one side.
