Treasure hunt: woven basket


On one of the antique markets around I recently got hold of these two woven items - one is sort of a plate traditionally used for serving bread and the other one is just pure beauty :-) My guess is that it had been used for storing a sewing kit or small household items. On the bottom of it with an old fashioned hand-writing stands the signature of its owner: "Kovács Bözsi, Palást".

I guess I could use it for about the same purposes as its original owner. But have a strong feeling that from time to time is will be turned into a summer handbag :-)
