Stamped with *Made in Italy* on the bottom. It is 12.5 inches wide, and 9.5 inches tall. I bought it at a yard sale for $3 dollars (CAD). Has flowers, Fruits, and Gold Gilt on it. The information I was told that it is a *Capodimonte style basket* made recently. These style baskets are very popular and used by gift companies for high end gift baskets. YES -- It is handmade (or at least woven and glazed and painted by hand). Italian Pottery takes a bit of handcrafting!
Something similar but smaller:
****@ Surfdub66 posted a Beautiful Similar weaved basket, and I was inspired then to also post mine. Funny how us *collectors* collect the same type of item .... even across the miles!!! LOL
