The gorgeous woven green and gold Hawkeye picnic basket is in very good condition. The curved mustard metal handles enhance the overall appearance on this beautiful retro picnic basket. The two aged-brass hinges have a gorgeous patina developing on their surfaces.
According to references, this basket is referred to as a "Hawkeye" basket from Burlington Basket Company.
The framing of this gorgeous basket is made to hold and carry contents. The photo of the bottom reveals a thick wooden frame. While the exterior is decorated with a gorgeous woven green with gold strand material, the interior reveals the sides are made of a sturdy cardboard-like material. The opening in the top of this beautiful picnic basket is large enough to easily place casseroles and/or covered dishes on the inside of this gorgeous Hawkeye picnic basket.
There are no holes, breaks, or repair places on this gorgeous woven green and gold picnic basket. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub places on the basket - mainly in the form of marks on the edges and bottom where it has come in contact with different surfaces. There are some places of discoloration on the basket - mainly on the plain interior material. The mustard colored metal handles are intact and in great working condition. The handles have a slightly distressed appearance. The aged-brass hinges have a developing patina on their surfaces. The back stationary section of the lid has a little bit of movement in that it moves upward a tad-bit when the larger side of the lid is opened. To remedy this if so desired, the thick wooden brace that holds the hinges of the lid simply needs another staple or tack placed through the top edge of the basket into the ends of the wooden brace.
The decorative possibilities for this beautiful woven green and gold Hawkeye picnic basket are many. While this would make an awesome picnic basket for virtually any occasion, this basket has tons of decorative potential. The living are would be enhanced by the addition of this gorgeous woven lidded storage basket. The basket could hold magazines, throws, or even a small pillow for the occasional nap-time. Also, the bath area would welcome this gorgeous Hawkeye basket for its large interior capacity to hold linens and towels. In addition, legs could be added to the bottom of this basket to make a beautiful night stand or accent table.

***Shipping will include insurance
***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:
If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.
***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.
