I don't know that this colander is safe to use so I will go ahead and not recommend it, but it makes a great decoration. With its chipping blue paint and red underneath the colors are perfect.
This is something that will be in the next vintage basement sale, unless one of you snags it up early here. Email me if you want it debsfreckles (at) yahoo (dot) com.
*this is meant to be sold to my locals here in the valley of the sun. If you are not local and really want and are willing to pay the shipping I will ship it to you*
