The handle of this basket dictates the shaping. The baskets are larger on the bottom - 8" square on the larger basket and 6" square on the smaller basket. They both gradually decreases in size the taller they become. As the baskets grows, the stakes are cut narrower to accomadate the smaller size at the rim.

Approximate measurements are: Larger basket: base - 8" square, 9" to rim of basket and 13" to top of handle. Smaller basket: base - 6" square, 5 1/4" to rim of basket and 8" to top of handle.

The primitive label attached to the front of the larger basket reads "WOOL" with a sheep underneath and the date 1897 under the sheep. The smaller basket's label features a sheep and the word "WOOLENS". Both label is distressed and looks old. I attached the label to a thin wooden strip, painted black, and is held onto the basket with embroidery floss.

The rim of the basket is BLACK to match the framed label.

Once completed, the basket was stained with my homemade black walnut dye. This dye is 100% "green", no chemicals like mineral spirits to leave a lingering odor. I "cook" this dye on my kitchen stove with black walnuts and water.
