Woven wicker waste paper basket.  Approximately 39cm diameter at the top rim and 27cm at the base x 37cm tall.  Has distinct A.M. (Air Ministry) and crown markings to the base.  See photographs 8 & 9 showing an identical one in use in a WW2 fighter dispersal hut.  The bin is a bit grubby/dusty with a few minor knocks/broken canes but in good +/very good overall condition.  They look great in a collection/period room but are really hard to find.  We've had just a handful in the past 26 years...  Stock code M23475.
