This woven Basket measures 6" tall and measured one way the circumference is 33.5".
Measured the other way the circumference is 21.5". It hangs at 23".
I bought this basket in the early 1990's. It's shape adds to the antiquish look and is all the more impressive because making a basket with an attached lid is difficult. The top rides up and down on the shoulder strap. Yes, you could use it as a purse. This is definitely a one-of-a-kind basket.
