Egg Basket-Fil de Fer Style

These baskets were typically made by itinerant vagabonds, to back ends meet as they roamed the country. Theyrisked being arrested if they could not show that they could support themselves. Therefore, they had pliers / tools and different types of steel wire with them, which they used to make small items to sell.

In France, such iron objects are referred to as “objet de Fil de Fer”.
