Rose Footed Bowl, Metal Wire.

 

When Was Wire Invented?

A cylindrical and flexible strand of metal, evidence of wire has been found in archaeological sites dating back 5,000 years ago. Initially, the wire was used in jewellery. Metal strips would be pushed through holes in stone beads so the metal would fold over into a tube shape. The first wire mills began to pop up in England in the 1500s. As time passed and human technology became more sophisticated, wire began to be used for electrical purposes and to be made into wire ropes.

When Were Baskets Invented?

Traditionally made out of stiff, fibrous materials, baskets have been around for just about as long as human civilization. Archaeological evidence shows that weaving techniques used to make baskets date back at least 10,000 years in what is currently the Middle East. Since then, not much about baskets has fundamentally changed. The materials have gotten stronger, but the basic shape and functionality have persisted.

So…When Were Wire Baskets Invented?

The two were combined to become Wire Baskets in the late 1800s.
