French Cast Iron Whelk Basket
We bought this rustic octagonal rope and iron whelk basket with an eye towards making it into a lamp, but it could also be used as a container for dried flower arrangements or planter lined with sphagnum moss. In terrific, untouched condition and this one even has an old whelk shell inside! Perfect in a nautical-themed or seaside home and where are you ever going to see anything like this again? Wonderful aged surface; rusty iron, great structural condition and no, it doesn't smell.
