The handle has been intricately wrapped and what appears to be handmade tacks are strategically placed on the outer wrap. The overall effect is intriguing and visually pleasing
The basket has a great nutty brown aged coloration. There is slight damage in two placed to the outer portion of the ears. At some point an owner has applied a coat of shellac - inside and out. The height without the handle is 6" and with the handle is 10 3/4". The diameter is 12".
Overall this basket is in excellent condition.
