This is a sweet little silver(maybe) basket with a decorated handle. The label on the basket says Special metals and Homan MFG Company. This is a special basket and would make a special decoration. The basket is 7 1/2 inches long and 3 1/4 inches wide. The decorated handle is 1 inch wide. It is 4 1/2 inches high. This would be great with little soaps or cards or many ways to decorate. Really a lovely decorater touch. From Kansas for you.
