Beautiful Vintage 1960s Picnic Basket with Unusual Wooden Top
A large vintage picnic basket woven of wooden slats and wicker from the early to mid-1960s.
Basket is in excellent condition.
The top of the basket is an unusual configuration which operates on wooden rails and opens horizontally rather than a traditional hinged top. Both sides of the wooden top are held in place with leather straps. The basket appears to be put together with primarily brass tacks and is in excellent condition showing little wear given age. A beautiful piece for display, tailgating or picnic.
Basket measures 21.5" x 10" wide, 12.5" tall with a 8.5" double handle.
