A true original, the Longaberger Darning Basket boasts many wonderful attributes. Its inverted bottom and shoestring weave look beautiful in the 1973 Collection pattern featuring Vintage, Pewter, Light Brown and Pale Grey with a commemorative gold-tone tag. This classic shape is one of Longaberger's original round baskets. Perfect for storing luncheon plates on the counter, for pet toys under and end table or for organizing bathroom essentials. When used with the plastic protector, it makes a great serving piece for chips or crackers.
