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.
