Everything about this basket says quality.  The shape with its extreme rim, the matte, almost chalky robin's egg blue, the design of the weave ~ so very '30s ~ the condition, the versatile size. It is a pleasure to look at.  You won't even have to find a use for it. It can just sit there and look pretty.  However, it is so strong and sturdy, you'll want to use it for everything.  Length at top 15 1/2"; length at bottom 9 1/2"; 8 1/2" deep; height including handle about 12 1/2".  All original.
