    This is my only image of this basket. It was broken in shipping, the longest arm was broken close to the basket. The seller refunded my money and let me keep it. The seller was on vacation and her mother had no idea how to pack it. I'm surprised that both handles weren't broken. Very hard to find piece and very difficult to ship. I don't have the heart to show more images of it. I don't think it is repairable. I recently purchased another one in red. We'll see if it makes it. This one was 18" tall and the red one is 16".

      Same as above, so sorry this happened

      We all know ‘it happens’.. and we hope it never ‘happens!’ to us.. nothing worse than opening something you have been waiting excitedly for and finding it broken, very sorry, but I believe if you have found one you’ll find another, may take a little while but it will happen, in your case sooner than later... fingers crossed for you on this one arriving safely..:-)

      I simply cannot imagine how anyone would go about packing something so spectacularly fragile... <eeeek> What a shame that this orange one ultimately didn't survive its shipper's pdf (*) and my best wishes for the red one 'to come'...?!!

      (*) pdf = Package Destruction Facility. FedEx, UPS, USPS, they *all* have one or two hidden somewhere in sooper-secret locations known only to upper level executives, staffed by employees who have sworn legal oaths of secrecy and are in fact transported to their daily jobs from remote locations while blindfolded in the back of otherwise typical looking delivery trucks. (their families think they work for Said 'trusted employees' spend their workdays inventing new and creative ways to defeat the best efforts of package shippers, ranging from the typical 'football/bowling' game themes (small packages, especially those labeled "FRAGILE") to rather involved processes utilizing any of a wide variety of heavy motorized machinery. Get one of those "Amazon employees" just drunk enough, once or twice, and the sooper-secrets start to spill... <wink><giggle>

      @Ilikethings - Yeah it sucked that it got broken, but the second one I bought made it OK. I have a post for that one, too. You are right, having a cat or cats, is just accepting the fact that they are going to break something, I just lost my good friend Isom a couple of months ago (white short hair, left eye blue right eye green). He was a bit over 13. When he was just under a year old he was walking across one of my end tables and put both front feet in a glass bowl on the table and it started sliding across the table. He looked me straight in the eye and he was panicking. The bowl slid off the table and he jumped to the floor. That bowl was pretty much junk, but it just so happened that I had been cleaning the lower shelf of the table and my favorite studio glass bowl was sitting on the floor in front of the table. I heard glass breaking and when I looked down the crap bowl had hit the studio glass bowl dead center and broke it cleanly in half. The crap bowl didn't have a mark on it. That studio glass bowl is still sitting where I put it 13 years ago. It was a great piece of glass and I just can't throw it away. I think about Isom every time I look at it and have a chuckle.
