This is a truly fabulous French find.  Very unusal and exceedingly beautiful French bentwood bait box.

 

For it's age it is in a lovely condition and beautifully made.  The leather hinges are delicate but still intact.  There are general signs of wear and tear but nothing that detracts from its outstanding beauty.

 

It's a charming bait bucket with a lot of characters: bentwood handle, leather hinges, and metal clasp.

 

Size:  D25cm x H23cm (H36cm with handle up)
