A Large Late Victorian Wicker Hamper
Wicker hampers were used throughout the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century to store goods and linen. They were very popular in warehouses and stores as a way of transporting goods. Also used in the commercial laundries and the private laundry of a country house or large town house.
This is a large hamper in with steel fittings. It would be used in a commercial laundry or for moving goods and laundry around in a large country house.
The condition is good no breaks to the wicker and the hinged lid works well.
