These wicker and wood with tin inserts and metal baskets were used by florists for floral arrangements for weddings, funerals, etc. I was lucky to come across about 10 at once at a flea market a few years ago. The dealer seemed anxious to get rid of them and let me have them all for $3.oo!! What a deal. I have seen the larger ones at antique shops and shows for up to $75.00. So I was happy to add the 10 to my others.
