This matching pair of cast-iron flower baskets makes a desirable and unusual gift—particularly for a gardener or inspired interior decorator. The set is from the Hinton Collection, designed and made by Chelsea Flower Show Gold Medal winners Ascalon Design of Herefordshire. The scroll design and vintage look make them elegant enough for the house, as well as the conservatory or garden.
They are extremely sturdy and stand firm under weight, and they will show a variety of floral arrangements to advantage, large or small, from cut flowers to dried arrangements and grasses, and of course pot-grown plants. Because they are cast iron, they will weather the elements all winter if you choose to position them outside.
The large basket will take an impressive arrangement. It stands 87cm (just under 3ft) tall and the basket itself is 43cm in diameter (1ft 5in). The small basket is 74cm (2ft 5in) tall with a 34cm diameter basket (just over 1ft 1in). Free UK mainland delivery.
