This wire basket is adjustable and can be made to lay flat for a wall decoration or a cooling rack. In its flattened mode, it measures 12 1/2" in diameter. The most commonly used position would be for a flared basket. It would be perfect with a napkin for a bread basket. It does have considerable rust. There is a metal tag which reads Germany. Nice collectible.
