Very small creel or fishing basket, 6 1/2" long, 4" wide, 5" tall, lid is 5 1/2" by 3 3/4". I don't believe this is a child's purse. There is no evidence of fabric lining or an attachment of a shoulder strap. It is made of wicker and is hand woven, complete with carrying handle and wood slide for keeping the lid closed. A few strands of the wicker are broken but it is still structurally sound. I have not run across a creel this small, however I am not comfortable calling it a salesman sample.

We have a large selection of creels listed. We do not sell damaged creels or ones with the bottoms rotted out. It was a common practice to place wet moss inside of the creel, this kept the trout fresh. For this reason the vast majority of creels have severe damage and crumble when handled. This is not the case with creels that we sell.
