Peterboro Classic Picnic & Storage Furniture Finished Basket


The very sturdy Peterboro Classic Picnic & Storage Furniture Finished Basket is constructed with a solid wood frame and finished with two coats of furniture clear lacquer for added protection from the elements. The bottom of the basket is also solid wood for added strength and durability. Two swing handles, attached with old fashioned wood dowels, give this basket a traditional feel.

This is a solid, handcrafted basket, with sturdy construction so you can carry your essentials with you to the park, ocean, lake, or just to the backyard. There is plenty of room inside for a throw, dinner for two, a bottle of your favorite beverage, and drinking glasses. For handy, creative people, this basket is perfect for storing sewing, crochet or knitting supplies, as well as other craft and art items.

Choose the option to personalize this basket.  Your personalization will be laser engraved on a solid cherry wood oval shaped plaque and securely centered to the non-swing portion of the lid.  There are two size options: The large size is 6" L x 1" at the widest point.  The small size is 3 ¼" L x 1" at the widest point. 

This classic picnic basket is available in Honey, Cherry, Driftwood Gray, and Sage Green finishes, as well as in Natural White Ash. It comes with the solid brass Peterboro Basket medallion on the front and a limited lifetime warranty. The basket measures approximately 18½"L x 10⅞"W x 11⅛"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.

    Excellent basket.

    The basket is prettier than it appears online. Beautifully made, but it did smell like the lacquer used to seal the wood. However, the smells disappears within several days. This will last for many years to come!

    I recently ordered two of the picnic baskets to use as shower gifts for two upcoming events. I love the personalized plaque for each basket and the lovely finishes. This will be a gift for the bridal couple to treasure and use for many years.

    Great quality and perfect size for our family of 3. My only disappointment was the color was off - the gray wash was more brown than the picture showed.

    Purchased this basket for a wedding gift (with the name plate) in the gray. It is beautiful...and sturdy. The wood grain is very nice on the lid. I like the wood frame on the top and bottom. Hopefully will be used for many years by the young couple.

    Great buy

    Posted by Unknown on Oct 4th 2016

    Customer service was very helpful. I bought a picnic basket for a special day on vacation. When I realized my picnic basket might not make it before we left, I called customer care and worked it out to where I could still get the basket before we left. The basket is sturdy, looks great and will last for years.
