It's no wonder vintage French baskets are so hard to find. I came home from the dentist's office this afternoon feeling rather the worse for wear, only to find woodworm had taken over two baskets holding books. Those little monsters were literally munching the baskets' foundations to bits. I spent two hours filling in tiny little holes in each basket with woodworm killer, only to discover woodworm holes in one small side section of the Spanish chest! Maybe those holes were there before and the chest no longer has woodworm. But to be safe, I had to treat it again. Time to stop collecting vintage baskets.
