baskets are woven over a mould to which a base is attached. The base has a slot
into which the ribs or staves are inserted and formed around the mould. Cane
is used to weave tightly between the ribs. When the weaving is completed, the
basket is removed from the mould. The rims are attached and laced with a narrow
piece of cane which covers the ends of the ribs. The basket is then coated with
shellac or polyurethane for durability. Finished handles are then added to complete
picnic basket measures approximately 18"x13"x12". It is constructed
of oak staves and rims. Woven with cane, it has a cherry base and a
hinged cherry lid. Ivory knobs complete this sturdy basket.
