Walther & Söhne Viktoria Basket.
« on: August 15, 2021, 02:48:58 PM »
This is the Viktoria basket, I think number 42543, shown here on P.153.

Pamela also has one in her baskets section.

 The length is approximately 17cm.

Very common in the UK, though often without the handle

I have the handle on mine but it's a bit wonky as it was posted to me by ebay seller who used too small packaging and squashed the handle out of shape. :'(

Anne, the handle on mine is broken on one of the bends of the triangle on the end. I've done a sort of repair to try to stabilise it until I can work out a permanent fix. Perhaps you could try carefully applying some steam to yours to reshape it, but I wouldn't guarantee it would work.
