This lovely and scarce pyrography wastebasket measures a tall 14" high by 9" across each side by 9.5" wide, and 12" on the diagonal.  It was likely produced by the Flemish Art Company in New York at the turn of the last century.  It is a nice early Flemish piece, with a gorgeous deeply carved Iris blossom motif.  Each side is treated differently, with an Iris blossom, but there is clearly a 'front', in which the deepest carving and deepest staining can be seen. The patina is a beautiful deep and rich brown.  This large wastebasket does not bear the Flemish Art mark, but it is likely one produced and distributed by the company.  It is in near original condition, with normal wear from being a ripe old age of 100+ years.  There is an old thin sliver out of the frontal corner, which is actually hard to notice unless you look for it because the stain covers it. There are seams in the center of each side, likely because these items were built from a kit, and that is how they were distributed. Overall, this basket remains 'tight', and while there is an old scuff or two from a vacuum in its lifetime, it is in very good presentable condition and would grace any room. This vintage wastebasket makes a very rich Arts & Crafts presentation.
