This tall and wide basket was hand made with grapevines in a generous round shape. Including the handle, the basket is 18 inches tall; without the handle, it's 8 inches tall. It's 14 inches across the top from handle to handle with a 9 inch diameter bottom. The hoop handle is constructed of twisted vines and nicely attached to the body of the basket. The color is a nice warm rich brown. It's in great condition, with just a few breaks that have 1 inch pieces missing, which do not detract from the basket's beauty. This is a very useful basket for storage or decoration.
