Not sure what sort of basket it is - I think it may be a log basket with a little separate attachment for match boxes, but Brendan thinks it is a sink drainer - but it seems to be too big for that.
Either way it only cost 3€.
Just have to find a home for it now.
I also bought this lovely big cast iron casserole dish, enamelled in this lovely light green. The outer edge may be a bit damaged but it is like new inside.
