I use this to store some of my piano music, on the floor next to the piano. It is sturdy and large enough to hold the books upright.
I love these baskets, they are large and lovely in proportion, with great useful handles. i added thin wooden tops to them with leather hinges, a bit of work but worth it. the natural color ages over time to a rich golden brown, and I know I will get years of use out of them. They feel wonderful on my arm full of potluck, produce, or gifts. Thank you!
It's all about the workmanship & quality reliability: both are consistently excellent; including in comparison w. Baskets from other producers. & thereare no sharp edges or points!
