I bought this for a silent auction and stuffed it with goodies. It is a very attractive, modern and unusual picnic basket. The exterior and leather buckles seemed sturdy and the accessories ESP the blanket were cute. It was one of the most popular items at the auction and raised a lot of money for a good cause! I wanted to keep it for myself :) I can't speak to the long term quality but it sure is a sharp looking set. If I would ever use it, I would buy another one....
I bought this as a birthday gift for my girlfriend. She always wanted a picnic basket and this one fit her style perfectly. I think it's traditional yet modern at the same time, a good pick for a young twenty-something couple (or any age group for that matter). The tableset for two is all securely held in the top lid and are of decent quality. I don't care for the random tupperware style plastic container inside, it's sort of random and doesn't really add any value. Maybe Picnic Time would do better to include something like a wine bottle sleeve or something else in it.
The blanket that came with it is not burgundy like the one pictured. It's actually a plaid pattern, the same one that the napkins and plate borders. Although this isnt necessarily a bad thing, I think the burgundy one would have been nicer. I just worry about losing a plaid napkin on a plaid blanket! :)
All the stitching appears to be of good quality. The leather buckles and accent are pretty cheap leather, but for the price, I didn't expect some high grade oiled fine grain. They will do the job just nicely. Overall a good buy that I would recommend to anyone or as a gift.
I bought this picnic basket as a gift to me and my husband for our 29th wedding anniversary. It is beautiful: quality construction, VERY roomy space on the inside, and wonderful tableware - wine glasses were real glass!!! Everything we wanted to bring fit perfectly for our picnic - we were even able to place a thermal lunch pack inside of the basket to keep cold things cold!! We got lots of compliments from passers by. Perfect - we will be picnicking often!!!
