    The long awaited metal suitcase post. It is a picnic basket, it is actually more than that but that will take another post.
    This is a Royalshire Picnicaire picnic basket. The case is metal. Looks like it may have been made by the American Metal Box Company but that is just a theory by me. Do not quote me on this.
    Guestimates on this are 1950s-1960s which seem reasonable.
    Has a generous set of color coordinated picnic plates and utensils. I am missing the proper forks and two spoons. Apparently it also came with inflatable chairs, or perhaps some did but there are none with this set.
    Dimensions are about 20" x 14" x 6".

      Thank you very much OneGoodFind. Will need to do something special for #1000. Was planning on doing the GI Joe Half Track. Am planning on Monday night.

      Tartan, or plaid, is one of my favourite patterns (in most colours), but I have never liked it on baskets or cases. Funny, huh?
      Clothing, carpeting, blankets, and wrapping paper I've liked it on (I wear it all the time).
      Even my blanket here is Royal Stewart tartan.

      Thank you very much SpiritBear. Never have given it much thought. But as I look around it seems I am partial to solid colors.

      The plaid on this works as it opens up to be a picnic table. Looks like picnic tablecloth.
