Manual Labour: An Interior with Three Figures Folding Laundry (1943, UCL Art Museum) by Wyn Casbolt (1914-1963) includes a hefty, solid basket. It is, perhaps, similar to the one in Malachi Whitaker's short story 'Spring Day at Slater’s End' in which young Marion Alice sees washing on a line in a garden, then 'a woman in white apron and a blue mob-cap...carrying a creaking basket filled with wet, folded white sheets and towels’. Nadine Anderson makes baskets which fit the bill.
