This was in an estate sale of an Ambassador's daughter whose anonymity was assured by Leslie Hindman. This is more of a work of art than a basket. The well-spaced design is all-around the basket. The lid fits tightly. The color shadings are beautiful.
Size: With lid a bit over 6" tall. Widest diameter about the same.
Condition: Very Good. I can find no damage or defects. (Photos are part of the description).
Circa: The appraiser estimated between 1890-1910.
