The Blessing Basket is a large (18" long, 15" high w/handle, 10 wide). it is based on an antique pattern to accomodate 2 dishes for a pot luck supper. the "bridge" across the top is meant to hold a dish cloth off the food but cover the top of the basket. We added the fancy braiding on the handle. Woven base. Truly unique! Makes a wonderful wedding or baby shower gift. Just fill with goodies and go!
