This beautiful basket has a woven 10 by 11 inch base. The top is round, 14 inches across. It is 10 inches tall. It is a walnut stain, woven with green and red dyed reed for trim. The handles are woven. Great for carrying many things, or pretty as a "catch all". A very sturdy basket.
Pat Huckins is based in Greenville, on Prong Pond, and has been weaving baskets for many years. She learned to weave at a class in Hallowell and has enjoyed it ever since. She has taught many classes in the past and her favorite student and fellow weaver is her nephew Levi. Levi is a bright young man with Autism, though he does not let Autism define him. He loves to travel, surf, down hill ski, swim, and compete in Special Olympics. Levi and his Aunt Pat have started a new venture selling their baskets on Moosehead Marketplace. They hope you enjoy the baskets as much as they enjoy making them.

I could write a small book of reviews for the Lupine Lady & her nephew Levi. I have lost count as to how many of these marvelous baskets I have been able to purchase over the last few years - more than a dozen. I use them to “house” gifts (Birthdays, Christmas , Easter)….. my two adult children, their spouses and my three grandchildren and a few dear cousins are usually the recipients! I almost always squirrel one away for myself lol too!! The baskets are durable, a good size and absolutely stunning in design ! Our baskets get used and abused in our family and these basket HOLD UP!! They make absolutely efficient and charming “wrapping paper” for presents. And then become a present themselves when emptied of their present contents. On each basket there is almost always some little detail that is so different and so unique - I am grateful to have access to the Lupine Lady’s art through the Moosehead Marketplace ….. Like many people, I suspect, I spend a great deal of time selecting quality gifts and I want the gifts that I have chosen to be of the best quality - these baskets have never disappointed on any level. Don’t hesitate
