I have a vintage wicker picnic basket made exclusively for

This answer was rated:

I have a vintage wicker picnic basket made exclusively for Brooks brothers in New York. The basket has a canvas cover for it since it was to be carried on the bACK of an auto. The lid of the basket is leather lined with the Brooks brothers name inside.

The entire piece is compartmentalized with wicker covered glasses, bottles, old silverware and all white enamel with blue trim plates and food containers. It is very quaint and I just wondered if there was a market for this piece and its value.

Thank you.
Hi! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I can assist you. You have what was actually called the "auto basket" and depending on overall condition will sell from $150 to $275. I have found one virtually identical which sold at auction in 2009 for $425--that is an all time record as best I can tell. Most seem to sell actively in the initial range stated. Best, Will
