Divided Magazine Basket

This is a great basket for magazines or newspapers, but could also be used as a project basket for knitting or rug hooking. 
The basket is constructed on a wooden base/handle combination that bears the entire weight of the contents.  Makes it perfect for keeping all your favorite prim magazines in!

The cross-stitch detail is made up of two different materials:  the horizontal strip is 1" wide maple that is laid over the vertical spokes and the stitching that holds it in place is narrow hamburg cane that has been dyed a deep maroon.  A fun technique that adds a different design element to this basket. 

Approximate measurements are:  height to rim of basket - 10", height to top of handle 13", length is 15" and width is 12"

$60.00 includes shipping
 (no international shipping on this due to size)
