This basket has wear that is consistent with age (over 100 years old). There are two tiers and the lid. It has been used to store all my sewing supplies. It stands 1 feet tall to the top of the handle, and 17 inches across. Over 100 years old, per the vendor I got it from overseas, at an on-base Bazaar. I bought another one, then won this one. Selling for $125 on eBay not incl shipping..
