Peterboro Basic Picnic Basket for Two

The conveniently-sized Peterboro Basic Picnic Basket for Two is great for an intimate outing. There is a solid wood lid which is hinged on the top and two swing handles for carrying. This basket is also the perfect size to keep on the counter to hold all your incoming mail. The lid keeps all items concealed until you have time to go through it. It’s also been suggested that this basket could be used as a craft tote or to take your lunch to work.

This basket comes in Honey, Cherry and Driftwood Gray finishes, as well as in Natural White Ash. It includes the solid brass Peterboro Basket medallion and limited lifetime warranty. The basket measures approx.: 14½"L x 9"W x 6¾"H.

Peterboro Basket Company is the only manufacturer of this “one-of-a-kind” basket design. The basket is handcrafted in the USA from hardwood Appalachian Ash and 100% American-made materials. All of the hardware has been brass coated to help prevent rusting.

    Awesome customer service

    When I ordered my picnic basket, I needed it sooner than the delivery date indicated. I called Peterboro and actually spoke to one of the owners. He was able to move up the delivery date, and I received it a couple of days before it was promised! Awesome service - AND a beautiful basket!

    So Many Uses!

    Posted by Pat Kubeika on May 18th 2016

    This is such a great basket. I purchased it to hold my many bottles of medications on the end table next to my chair so that they would be out of sight. Now I want to buy one for the kitchen counter to hold the mail that accumulates until I can take care of it. Next I thought wouldn't one be great on the side table in the dining room where my husband always seems to place his work paperwork until he gets to deal with it. I am sure I could probably think of a lot more uses for this well made basket.

    Great Baskets

    Posted by Lynn on Jan 3rd 2015

    This is the third basket I have ordered from Peterboro Basket. I've never been disappointed - all have been given as gifts and I have received rave reviews.

    My only comment would be the delivery. Even though I was given a preliminary expected delivery date, I had to call twice on 2 of the orders to report that I had not received the baskets. I understand that extra time is required when there is personalization and that the orders were placed at the end of November/very early December. However, when I called on the 3rd order placed on 12/09/14, it was not in the system and I received it a week later than promised.

    The quality of the baskets and the fact that I had planned for extra time made the frustration acceptable. I would not hesitate to place orders again. The baskets are truly beautiful - all 3 were different styles - all beautiful.

    Good, not great

    Very sturdy lid with fine woodwork. The lid operation isn't pictured; it lifts from one side, not the middle. It's a clever design nonetheless, but I would've appreciated a diagram or picture of the open basket.

    The actual basket part looks strong, but there aren't any supporting rods or anything. Not sure how this will affect the longevity of the product, but it will hold up for a long time with careful use.

    This can hold plenty of food for two people with a picnic blanket tucked between the two handles. My SO and I enjoy taking this to the park; it looks much better than a backpack and is a bit more romantic.

    tl;dr. Good product, should last if taken care of.
