This basket is nicely woven of oak splint with an "X" lashed double rim. In the central portion of the basket, the weavers are dyed sage green, wine red, pumpkin orange and pale lemon yellow. While the bottom is square, the top is round and the carved oak handle is notched. The basket is signed and dated in black ink on the bottom BLOCK 1989. It's a wonderful size that can be nestled into a grouping or stand alone looking great.
The bottom is about 6 inches square and the top opening is 6 inches across. The overall height is 8 3/4 inches including the handle; the height of just the basket is 4 1/2 inches. This basket is in great condition and a delight to decorate with.
