Longaberger Picnic Basket 1987 Large Picnic Basket W/blue Plaid Liner Retired For Sale
You are viewing a vintage, retired Longaberger Large Picnic Basket purchased at an Estate Sale. Handcrafted and handwoven, this basket remains the high quality product that the Longaberger family strives to provide.
Hand Woven of maple
Handles made of oak.
Classic soft brown stain
Splints are all intact, tightly woven, with minor ding on one splint, front of basket (see pic 7).
Dual swing handles intact with original copper rivets.
All rivets in place.
Leather hinges are in place with no tears - joined by original three small tacks.
Basket lid (top) has scuffing (see pic 8) (I'm not sure if this a part of the wear of the wood or if the stain has thinned in this area)
Leather and wooden knob closure all original and intact.
Outside bottom of the basket shows normal wear.
Inside bottom of the basket shows some superficial discoloration. (see pic 12). There is no damage to the splints and in working with a small area, I found that the splints can be cleaned and brought back to natural.
Lining is Red, White & Blue Plaid and is 100% cotton. It is in perfect condition, has never been laundered and does have some small stain areas around the top front and just needs normal laundering. (see pic 1)
Weaver's Initials and date are on the bottom of the basket. (pic 3)
Longaberger logo burned into the bottom of the basket that reads Longaberger Baskets, Handwoven USA. (pic 4)
This is a retired basket and is really one of Longaberger's most popular and valued vintage baskets. A great investment - functional and beautiful to look at. A wonderful addition to your collection. Thanks for looking!!
