About this object

This is a bread delivery basket which belonged to the Bullings, who had grocery businesses in Glenham, Menzies Ferry and Wyndham. This basket would have been very heavy when full, and the strong handle would have been very helpful. The wire mesh base would have allowed any crumbs to fall away.
