This telephone wire basket in muted rainy day shades of blue and gray was made by the Zulu people of South Africa. Handwoven from the rim down from plastic coated electrical and telephone wires, it is a lovely example of functional art. If you order this African basket you will receive the exact one seen in the image. Because it is unique, only one is available. It is approximately 2 1/2" deep by 6 1/2" in diameter. It is suitable for display or for daily use, and can be hand washed as needed.
