This little square cutie has leather "tote" style handles that give it some real personality. It is a Longaberger basket, hand woven of maple wood, stamped and signed DRS 1994 on the bottom by the weaver / artisan.
SIZE is a miniature 5 inches square by 3 inches from the table top to the top of the rim.
CONDITION: The wood has darkened to an attractive reddish brown. The tiny nails are as tight as ever, with no rust. The handles are firmly secured with their ends tightly sandwiched into the rim. This basket apparently has been a shelf piece: we brushed some dust out of the inside, but a little remains. There are a few light stains on one end.
VERY IMPORTANT: See our last picture. The bottom corner upright has cracked across. This has no impact on stability but it "is there."
IMPORTANT: The leather handles were dry and stiff when this basket came to us. We have given them a good oiling with leather oil to soften and restore them.
