Fabulous Folding Wire

Antique Folding Wire Basket with Looped Petal Edges

I love wire baskets, especially when they have these fabulous folding "petal" edges

This antique german example is a basket and a tray in one. The petals fold up for a basket, or lay flat to create a serving tray or trivet. I think it would even make a great cooling rack for muffins or a pie!

Vintage Folding Wire Light Bulb Cage

And then there's this... A little antique wire light bulb cage, with those same folding petal edges that you see on old wire egg baskets, like this one...

Just imagine how cute this would be on a bare ceiling bulb or a desk lamp! I've never seen one quite like this before - so industrial chic, yet with a feminine touch.

I just listed both of these items in my etsy shop, so be sure to take a look!
