All parts - the top and bottom rings, the bottom rungs, and the uprights - are all round rods. The wonderful little ball feet are solid brass/bronze, and do not remove. I had this basket professionally electroplated in an antiqued, dull nickel finish which is a matte (low sheen) strong and durable silvery finish, very smooth, but with enough surface imperfections and irregularities to blend nicely with your aged nickel bath fixtures. It is not shiny chrome.I show a photo of what it looked like before being re-plated. See last pic, outside, with yardstick. I show an identical basket in a 1908 JL Mott Iron Works Catalog "A" , and also, JL Mott Modern Plumbing catalog of 1914, which shows one in use under a sink. I show a few of the pages from these catalogs (these catalogs are in the public domain). This is only the second Victorian towel basket that Ive found in my lifetime. This one is particularly heavy and strong weighing about 8 pounds before packing. Approximate size: 19-3/4" tall to top of rim, x 11-1/4" diameter top rim, overall. Shown with an apple, for scale. Marks ------- no markings detected.
Guaranteed old and as described. Please check out my other things for more vintage bath accessories. We have a photo studio and take all our own product photos for our listings.
