How cute are these tiny baskets by Derek Downing! These are a miniature version of his Grapevine and his Rainbow series, but measuring approximately 3” by 3”. Place these on an end table with candies or mints inside. Or on the mantle or bookcase a set of 3 will catch the eye and bring out the compliments. Take a look at the color choices we offer, too; and if you have any specific requests, just type them into the Special Instructions box.
