Many of us have seen doll-sized French picnic baskets before, but seldom do you see one that is sized for an adult or child. This is a child-sized example that would make a wonderful display item, or as a container for the trousseau of a special doll. it is made just like the smaller baskets, just in a larger scale. the only difference I can see is that there is a strip of velveteen sewn over the base of the basket for that extra bit of extravagance.
The basket measures 10 1/2" wide x 7 1/2" deep x 10" high with the handle (26.5 x 19 x 25.5 cm). I have added the antique silk ribbon bow. Condition issues: one clasp to hold the lid closed is missing, there is a small area of broken reed, and the velveteen is showing wear.
This basket will make a wonderful addition to your collection of dolls or bears! Anyone for a picnic?
