Small Antique French Decorative Brass Hotte, Circa 1900

This small antique brass object is known as an hotte in French or basket, which would have been carried on ones back. They were common in vineyards for carrying grapes. This small decorative model has repousse images of a hunting scene in the forest. The back is plain and the base has three stepped out moldings.  There is a raised, decorated portion at the top. The small "backstrap loops" on the back are perfect for hanging on a wall. However, it can also be perfectly used as a tabletop accessory, jardiniere for dried flowers, or a wine cooler.

CONDITION:  Very good condition with minor dents to back and base.
