This sweet picnic basket is made from soft metal. It is ornate with basket of flowers on the top and blue flowers with a small bit of green on the sides. Overall it is metallic gold. This paint has a nice patina. It is a smaller size that is perfect for a dollhouse. This basket is 2-3/8" wide x 1-1/4" tall without the handle x 1-3/8" deep. It is in the 1" scale. The previous owner used this basket for "sewing supplies". There is a piece of fabric and some yarn "skeins". I believe these were added at a later time. These can be seen inside the basket in picture #1 and in picture #9.
This basket was used. There are a couple of bends and paint wear as seen in the pictures. In the first two pictures there is a brown spot by the handle. It was wax that I removed. The previous owner used wax for many reasons to keep things in place.
