Old Oak Slat Picnic Basket
This vintage, hinged lid basket is made of oak slats. The half inch horizontal strips are woven over vertical slats that range from about 1" to 1 ¾" wide. There is an almost 1" reinforcing band at the top edge, both inside and out. The lid, attached with two hinges, is made of varying width oak slats with two reinforcing slats nailed in the opposite direction and one additional slat along the back edge. It has two ¾" bent wood handles that pivot on nails. It just needs lunch to be ready for a picnic in the park.
It measures about 14 ¾" across at the top by 9" deep and 7 1/4" high excluding the handles. It is in fairly good condition with nice color and light wear. It has some splintered edges and a slat on the bottom has damage as shown in the pictures. There is also some minimal paint or other light colored scuffing.
The table cloth is being shown for fun and is not included.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
