This very large, sturdy basket is made of unpainted hand wrought iron, with all four sides and the bottom a latticework of flat, narrow iron strips. The framework consists of round iron bars. The side bars pass through a ring attached to the top rim and form the two very tall arched handles. It's a very well made basket and very useful.
This basket measures 16 1/2 inches long, 14 inches front to back and is 16 1/2 inches tall to the top of the handle. The depth of the basket itself is 7 inches. It weighs 5 1/4 pounds and is in wonderful condition, with no breaks or other damage. There's just a touch of rust to add to the patina.
Note: When this basket is packed for shipping, it will be a very heavy, very large package. We will ship it the most economical (and probably the slowest) way possible. If you'll need it quickly, please contact us BEFORE you purchase it so we can discuss shipping options. Thank you!
