This beautiful vintage wicker Moses basket is the perfect item to create a calming and comfortable resting place for your little one.

Part of the Utility CC41 furniture scheme, introduced by the British government designed to cope with shortages of raw materials and rationing of consumption during World War II.

The aim of this scheme was to ensure the production of strong, well-designed furniture making the most efficient use of limited timber. The designs were largely in the tradition of the Arts and Crafts movement, and were simplistic with lack of ornamentation, entirely contrary to the popular taste of the immediate pre-war period.

The Utility Furniture Scheme continued into post-war austerity and lasted until 1952, ten years after its introduction in 1942.

In visibly used condition with markings to the paintwork throughout as photographed. The inner mattress is missing but can be easily found on the internet and any good baby supply shop. We've given the item a good clean but would suggest cleaning with a disinfectant before placing a baby inside.

Measures approximately 83cm long, 46cm wide and 80cm tall when on the stand.

Width: 46.0 cm
Height: 80.0 cm

Estimated Price: £5.00 - £100.00
