This is a large basket with a solid oak base. I believe this basket is made from Ash,
but I am speculating only.
This is a heavy basket very solidly constructed. Great farmers market basket!!
The double handle is woven around some kind of metal, giving it more stability.
This handle is woven together at the top.
Please see the pictures. It has a lightly varnished surface. Naturally darkened with age.
CONDITION: Slight fading. No broken splints. Light scratches on the oak base, as to be expected by its age. Everything is very solid and secure.
SIZE: 12 1/2" across the top of the rim. Wooden base is approximately 8" across. 11" high.
