    Thanks everyone.this basket is 13 1/4 x 8 1/2 x 7 high.
    The wood with holes , and we do several , are a little like playing russian roulette. You hit a hole just right in the weaver and your done.

    we got patterns around 15 years ago. The guy that had them is now deceased. Don't think they've been available for several years now

    My wife & my Mom both collect Longaberger baskets. My wife got started thru my Mom's collecting them.
    But, neither of them own a basket like that. Definitely unique and well made.

    Thanks Herb,
    We have had many Longaberger Collectors stop at our booth at the shows. Nearly all of them have to purchase at least one. Couple years ago a lady spent couple hours looking at all we had on display. She eventually picked several. When she had paid she said "I have to admit I'm a Longaberger dealer and I have to tell you these baskets are amazing".We love to hear this.
