- Product Details
Nicknamed the 'eggy' basket by Lorna, this is a traditional oval swill basket, made using thin strips of coppiced oak woven around a hazel rim. Based on the larger Oak swill baskets that are embedded in the Cumbrian landscape, these baskets were historically used in all areas of industry and agriculture until the introduction of plastics.
