This lightweight split basket has a circular base with stakes that flare out at the rim. The handle is inserted in the lower rows of weaving and is designed to allow room for a cut flower arrangement. One of the stakes in the base of the basket is split. This creates an odd number of stakes which allowed for continuous weaving around the sides.
