You will use this basket for any years. The basket is the photo is stained.

Measuring 17"L x 8"W and 19" at the handle, the weaving moves more quickly due to a 2" ash strip insert! The handle weaves back into the basket and is wrapped making the basket extra strong. Dark Green is the one color choice.
