    Hello CW friends!!

    Nope, not a picnic basket. Believe it or not, there once were suitcases made completely of willow wicker. Here's one that I have in my collection. It was made in Europe in the early 1900's. Some of these were very elaborately lined with fabric, but, as you can see, this one is a much simpler version.

    Not much else to tell about this one, but I've always thought it was very unique.

    Thanks for stopping to have a look!!

      How clever is this. Wicker is light, strong, malleable (won't ding), environmental, good looking, and relatively cheap. We should still use it!

      Just a quick note....the Davy Crockett I have posted is 1 of 2 I've ever seen....Haddon Model 20 is the model, but they also produced another model 20,before and after it. so it was a temporary idea, lol
