The gorgeous distressed woven-wood step-down basket is in great condition. This gorgeous wooden basket is very solid and sturdy. One very unique design feature of this step-down basket can be seen on the bottom. The outer edge of the bottom has an additional wicker weave which makes this basket much more rigid than normal slat-weave baskets. While it is hard to know for certain, the wooden slat weave of this beautiful basket appears to be oak with a medium-brown oak stain appearance. Also, the tall one-piece bentwood handle helps to balance this gorgeous basket. Another design aspect that is peculiar and very appealing on this wooden step-down basket can be seen on the wrapped rim. The overall appearance of the weave is strikingly similar to a native American or Navajo-style spacing.
This basket was made to rest on a stairway or steps.
While we believe this particular basket is much older than vintage or mid-century, there are no dates or identification markings to give an approximate date. However, it is important to note that this basket has a gorgeous distressed and worn appearance that is very hard to duplicate without age. Furthermore, other similar looking baskets that are considered "antiques" have practically the same aged appearance. Also, from our limited experience, the size of this basket appears to be bigger than most stairway "step-down" style baskets. The taller bentwood handle has more of a rectangular design with angles closer to 90 degrees than arched or curved handles. The taller sides of the handle on this gorgeous wooden basket may lend evidence to the fact that this basket was designed to hold records or magazines, and/or to simply hold more rolled-up towels or laundry.
There are places where the edges of the slats are rough or have split off from the larger slat. Also, there are places where the woven-wood appears to be broken. However, these are mostly from where the material has simply stopped. There are some areas of the wrap around the wooden rim where the ends of the wrap are a tad-bit loose - most likely due to the age and curing of the wood. Other than these places, there are no large holes, breaks in the frame, or repair places on this gorgeous woven-wood step-down basket. The basket has been lightly cleaned. However, there may be a tiny are of dust or lint that is hidden inside a weave. There are vintage wear, age, and rub marks on this gorgeous basket - mainly on the bottom and edges where it has come in contact with different surfaces. Also, on the right side (looking from the back end) of the taller front section there appears to be a darker brown area that looks similar to dirt. However, it is not dirty in that respect but simply debris or something similar under the aged-stain.
The decorative possibilities for this beautiful brown woven-wood step-down basket are many. The stairway or raised stone hearth would be enhanced by the addition of this gorgeous wooden step-down basket. Also, even if a stairway or stone hearth is unavailable, the basket could be supported to help level out the top. Another aspect that helps the placement possibilities for this basket is the fact that it is very sturdy with a one-piece handle. The handle could be connected via a loop or hanger to a wall or table leg. The bathroom would welcome this gorgeous step-down basket for linen and/or towel storage. In addition, the growing basket collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this gorgeous woven-wood basket.
The collector will appreciate this gorgeous woven-wood step-down stairway basket for its great condition, sturdy design, and primitive farmhouse appearance.
The gorgeous woven wood step-down basket weighs approximately 24.1 oz.
The beautiful wooden stairway basket measures 13 3/16" tall to the top of the rim and approximately 23 3/16" tall to the top of the handle.
The brown woven basket measures 17 1/8" wide (length) x 9.75" deep (width).
The shorter back section of the basket measures approximately 8 1/8" from the back of the basket to the taller front section of the basket x 7 1/8" tall.
The front section measures approximately 6 3/8" taller (deeper if placed on stairs) than the back section.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
