Peterboro Traditional Picnic Basket

The Peterboro Traditional Picnic Basket is a “must have” for anyone that enjoys the great outdoors. Handcrafted from Appalachian White Ash (the same hardwood that’s used for baseball bats), you can be certain this handsome basket will stand the test of time. Lift up the smooth-finished baltic birch lid and there’s lots of room to hold a nice picnic lunch or dinner for four. The inside of the basket is custom-fitted with your choice of a green or blue gingham durable vinyl liner that wipes clean with a damp cloth.

A very much appreciated gift choice for weddings, anniversaries, housewarmings, and birthdays!

Add a special touch when you choose the option to personalize this basket.Your personalization will be laser engraved on a solid cherry wood oval shaped plaque and securely attached to the center of the fixed 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 in Natural White Ash. It comes with the Peterboro Basket brass medallion and limited lifetime warranty. The basket measures approx.: 18"L x 12"W x 10"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.

    Bought this for a gift and was so pleased with it. It takes me back to the days that we as kids use to go on family picnics.

    Super Cute

    Posted by Sherri on May 24th 2017

    This basket is super cute! My grown children have even asked about using them. That's the finest compliment we can give in my family. That said, the basket is durable and definitely a heirloom to pass down from generation to generation. The quality is just impeccable.

    Great Basket

    While I originally ordered this basket to store rolls of cross stitch fabric in, I will definitely be using it for picnics. It is large enough to hold quite a lot of food. I am very happy that I ordered it.

    Finally :)

    Posted by Jen Propes on May 29th 2015

    I have been searching for a classic picnic basket and finally found this. I will likely adhere feet to the bottom as I feel that's needed to keep it nice, but otherwise it's pretty perfect. I love the ability to add the custom piece for an anniversary date. It was extremely disappointing, however, to open it and see the red gingham as I wanted the blue as depicted and described. I only just saw the note that they'd replace the blue with red if blue was out of stock unless otherwise requested by the customer. Huge disappointment but my fault.

    very big beautiful picnic basket

    Posted by Kristin on Jan 23rd 2015

    I was a fellow at MacDowell Colony and used the lunch basket every day. Because of that, I wanted to get one for me and one as a present for my Mom. These baskets are beautiful, but also very large. Make sure to take out the yard stick and visualize the measurements before ordering. I love them though, just a little bigger than I had imagined.

    5 stars after it was fixed

    Posted by Jeanette on Oct 13th 2014

    First off, let me say you will NEVER find better customer service any where that beats Peterboro. They helped endlessly with helping me receive the newsletter, fixed the basket & went above & beyond to get it to me in time for a wedding gift. The basket is beautiful and roomy. I got the cherry and it is a lovely choice. The plaque is nicely done. The reason I sent it back was there was a staple sticking out and the handles had not been sanded enough. I called them that day, sent them the pics they requested and they repaired it and I think maybe re-stained some of it. Whatever they did, it is now perfect! I'm not upset about having to send it back for repairs. These things happen and they were so patient and nice about it. I love supporting American businesses so this was a plus. My only complaint involves no hangtag or paperwork about the company included with the purchase. I think, given its history, it would be a nice addition. Also, the packaging could have had some bubble wrap at the bottom to avoid any possible water damage en route to me. Other than that, this is a wonderful company with wonderful products!!! Buy something!
