I'm always on the lookout for multipurpose pieces, and porcelain French baskets are a favorite of mine. I can use them in a variety of ways from flower arranging to serving up crudités. Look for them in various shapes and sizes with elegant footed bases and delicate fretwork. Don’t worry if the gilt is wearing off from age—that only adds to the charm!
