A French faux-bois stone basket from the mid 20th century, with scalloped edges and distressed patina. Created in France during the midcentury period, this stone basket features a scalloped body topped with a large handle. Particularly popular in France during the later years of the 19th century through the 1940s, the faux bois technique (translating as false wood) allowed artists to use various media to imitate wood. If you ever stroll through the romantic paths of the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont in Paris, you will be able to appreciate early examples of this style. Accented with orange touches, this Midcentury French faux-bois stone basket will make for a charming addition to any garden!
