The unique "knotted" handle on this basket (or tray) is fabulous. With the impressed Continental Trade Mark and Minuteman Logo, this hammered aluminum dish displays their large and lovely embossed chrysanthemum pattern. The scalloped edge basket offers a sleek and cool look for spring and summer. These photos really don't do it justice. It is in very good used condition with a nice patina. There are the usual surface marks from use. The number 772 is also impressed on the bottom by the trademark.
The tray measures 13 1/8" long and 7 1/2" across. It works wonderfully on the table as a bread basket or a great way to display a favorite collectible like postcards (as shown), photos, old letters, current mail or even an Easter egg display.
*The postcards shown here are sold separately.
