I had to buy this basket as it's a décor I've not seen before. The handle is the Welz take on a thorn handle......I have a few. The base is typical of Welz baskets......rough pontil. Stripes coming from the centre, like spokes of a wheel, are also seen on knownWelz striped décors. Finally the pink interior is a pink I have on another Welz Item. The green is not aventurine.
So, not the most beautiful basket ever seen, but another Welz striped décor for my collection. I could only hazard a guess on its period so I'm leaving that alone!
