This bride's basket measures 20 1/2" high at the top of the handle, 9 1/2" x 9 1/2" on the squared lid, 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" on the squared bottom. It consists of 4 slim sections that sit one on top of another with a lid on the top one. It is tightly woven with lightly carved decorations on the 4 "corner" edges, and a deeper carving down the sides of the handle. A beautiful russet color, it is probably quite old, but listed as vintage because I can't be sure of the age. It is meant to hold the bride's most precious possessions when she leaves home. It can now be one of your prized possessions. Please email me with any questions you may have, and thank-you for shopping here at Something Wonderful.
