Object Name Basket
Description Woven cane basket in thin rectangular shape with rounded ends designed to carry thermos etc for picnics. It has a wooden base and a wooden board cross the centre, dividing the basket into two compartments. The handle is an upside down 'U" shape with a loop at each end to connect with the loop at the end of a small cane peg which goes down between the woven cane a short way.

Stamped on the base is "Chisholms, Travel Goods and Handbag Specialists, Prams, Sulkies, Bassinettes, Basketware, 339 Stafford St, Timaru, Ph. 2119". Also handwritten in black is "A.D.T." and something else stamped on that cannot be easily read.
