In the times before the motoring rest stops included finger eaten fast food and a drink taken from a straw there were picnic baskets, also called, hampers or picnic sets that were prepared in advance of the trip....The early versions were usually made from wicker and resembled baskets and that became a generic term for them.
This wonderful vintage 4 person picnic "basket",made by Coracle, England circa 1920-1930's. The plates, cups and saucers and the bottom of "veggie" dishes are porcelain. The "basket" and contents are in very good condition. The side handles could be used to strap the basket to a wide running board or the back of a "roadster".
