Packed with country charm, a Fishing Creel Basket might garner some tall tales from old-timers who remember spending all day fly fishing from the banks of a river. Today, it remains inside as a rustic piece destined to hold items that would otherwise cause clutter. Traditional in styling, the flat base with tapered sides and narrow mouth can hide away mail to be sorted later, or it can serve as a welcome basket in guest bedrooms. Raise the lid and it allows dried or fresh flowers to overflow on a foyer console or living room coffee table. Expertly crafted by hand, rattan wicker in its natural hues is accompanied by a decorative rope attached at either side.
