Rustic Antique Chicken Wire Teapot Folk Art Basket

Holy Moly, did I find a treasure trove at a recent sale in St. Charles, IL. Check out my upcoming listings because I purchased some wonderful antiques and primitives, many from the 1800's. I’m off for the summer, so that means I’ll have lots more time to shop and list on Ebay. This area has exploded this summer with auctions and estate sales, and I’m finding wonderful treasures! I’m listing many more items during the summer, and listing on all days of the week, so be sure to check often! If you want to cut down on the number of pages that you have to scroll through, click on “gallery” under the “view as” on the upper left on top of the listings.

I've never seen anything like this before! What I have is an old chicken wire (a magnet sticks to it) basket (is it supposed to hold eggs - that would be cute?!?) basket in the shape of a teapot. It was hanging indoors, in a kitchen, so it is in really good condition. I've left the hanging wire on it - in case you want to use it. It measures 11 1/2" wide handle to spout, is 8" tall and 7" deep. This was hand made - and someone must have put a looot of time into it. Excellent solid sturdy condition. T are some small spots of isolated surface rust - very minor. The lid even has a little wire hinge that lifts up and down. Fill it up with something fun, or use it for a floral display, or leave it as it is -- you can't go wrong with this cutie!

Please ask if you have any questions, or feel free to inform me if you have any information about one of my listings. As with any of my items, if you ever need extra pictures, let me know, just make sure that you give me an email address to send them to. Pick up is welcome on all of my items. I’m happy to combine shipments for you.

Please do not let Ebay’s new policy of requiring electronic payments keep you from bidding. Email me if this is not possible for you and we can discuss alternatives.

I have had some trouble with the Ebay shipping calculator giving people bombastic shipping rates (especially after purchase with the Ebay “Pay Now“ invoice on Parcel Post rates). I charge shipping cost, so if you think it’s too high, email me so that I can check it out, before you pay me. That being said, we pack very well, so that will add to the weight.

I ship within one business day of receipt of your payment, or I will notify you otherwise.

With postage rates going up and up, I am shipping more items Parcel Post. Please realize that this can mean a 2-3 week delivery, sometimes longer. I mail right away so it can get to you as soon as possible.

Also, with the exception of the most heavy items, I will always give both Priority Mail and Parcel Post as shipping options, with Priority being first for my lighter items. Be sure you check out both rates . I will be happy to ship an item in a flat rate Priority mail box, if that is cheaper to you - as long as the item will fit well packed in the box - ask me before you bid if you think that’s the case for you.

INTERNATIONAL: Shipping costs are available to mainland U.S. only. If outside, please ask me for shipping. Shipping times vary and I’ve experienced up to 8+ weeks for delivery after I have mailed internationally (and longer if it‘s stopped for inspection). Please keep this in mind when bidding. T is no USPS tracking or insurance for items mailed 1 st class international. It’s only offered by USPS for the more expensive priority mail international, which I may require for shipping, depending on the item. I will let you know when you ask me for a shipping quote. Also, import duties, taxes, and country specific charges are not included in the purchase price or the shipping price. All international buyers must pay with Paypal, no other payment types are accepted.

Customer satisfaction is extremely important to me. If you receive an item and are not satisfied in any way, please contact me. .…and thanks so much for looking, I appreciate having you as a cu...
