Peterboro Extra Large Picnic Basket with Hinged Lid

The Peterboro Extra Large Picnic Basket with Hinged Lid is a large capacity basket with an old-fashioned style, 3/4 hinged lid and swing handles. This basket can easily hold a picnic for four. It has two swing handles that you can carry with one arm to keep the other hand free. It also works great for taking casseroles to potluck suppers or family gatherings.

Choose the option to personalize this basket. Your personalization will be laser engraved on a solid cherry wood oval shaped plaque and secured to the center of the attached quarter 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 basket is available in Honey, Cherry, Driftwood Gray, and Sage Green finishes, as well as Natural White Ash. It comes with the Peterboro Basket brass medallion on the front and a limited lifetime warranty. The basket measures approx.: 22"L x13"W x 9½"H. 


Peterboro Basket Company is the only manufacturer of this “one-of-a-kind” basket design. The baskets are 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.

    Finally a new picnic basket!

    Posted by Karen Lovendahl on Jan 2nd 2017

    I have had a picnic basket similar to this one, which is why I ordered it. Mine is held together by duct tape now. I am very pleased with your basket. I would have preferred a solider bottom, but it is fantastic. I've used it a couple of times, and it stood up to a load of casseroles! It is beautiful and I love it.

    Nice Basket

    Posted by Judy K Zielkie on Dec 9th 2016

    This is just what I was looking for. My daughter wanted a picnic basket for Christmas like one I had. My is over 43 years old and this came the closest. I'm sure she'll have many years of use.

    We ordered this basket (at a rush, too!) for our wedding, and it came in time and looks wonderful in our photos (we had a private picnic just after our ceremony to nibble on some appetizers before re-joining our guests, so the basket really set the scene). We look forward to using it for many, many years to come. As a bonus, it's huge, so you can really pack a feast, and we love finding excuses to break it out. It definitely got some admiring looks when we brought it for an outdoor play over the summer. I think it just looks so classic that it can't help but get a smile!

    Basket Company Provides Unexpected Service

    Posted by Bob Greene on Aug 28th 2015

    Bob orders a basket without realizing the lead time needed for manufacture and delivery. Bob discovers this with only a short time before the wedding (picnic basket is the gift). Bob calls Peterboro and the staff does everything it can to help. Ta-Da! Bob receives the basket (an upgrade at that) just in the nick of time. Thank you!
    Bob's wife Mary says it's a REAL NICE picnic basket.

    The very best!

    I recently purchased you oversized picnic basket with hinged lid. I chose the cherry finish & added the personalized plaque too. When the basket arrived I was absolutely thrilled with it. The cherry finish is really beautiful. The oversize is very generous & works very well in the trunk of our car. I like to use it for doing errands around town as well as picnics - so far only one of those this year so early in the season. I know we will enjoy using this classic basket for many years to come. The craftsmanship is second to none. I particularly like the finish options - as I mentioned I chose the cherry, which is warm & unusual.
    I will be looking at more of your beautiful products online. Customer service was excellent & the basket arrived in a very timely fashion. No wonder your company has been around since 1854!

    Great, versatile basket

    I bought this basket to hold my embroidery supplies. It has great room. I love the big lid, as it is easy to load and unload. Great construction and style. It is pretty enough to sit out. I am VERY pleased.

    My oversized picnic basket arrived today. It's just beautiful. Sturdy and comfortable to carry as well.
    Yogi Bear will be drooling after the lunches I can pack in this baby!
