Our Large Tulip basket is in our French Wire collection, which was inspired by the great gardens of France. This is one of those designs you might expect to find in one of the world’s greatest flea markets, such as the famed Marche aux Puces in Paris, but it is new. Its aged appeal comes from the fact that the iron is hand bent, the wire is twisted, then the composition is assembled and covered in a rust finish. Every individual joint is welded and the piece is powder coated for durability, which means it’s safe for outdoor use but you should expect changes in coloration as the piece is exposed to the sunlight and weather. To prevent this, it is recommended that this basket be sealed annually.
