According to the woman from whom I purchased the basket, it stands 3 3/4 inches (9.5 cm) tall with the cover on, 8 inches (20.3 cm) in length, and 6 inches (15.2 cm) across, and my ruler shows that to be just about correct. The content include my three-sizes of wooden tablet-weaving cards, my two nalbinding needles (one bone, one antler) and some lovely wool thread from Phiala's Stringpages. When I find them again, my good scissors will go inside as well. Hopefully, I'll have more motivation to experiment with tablet weaving and nalbinding now that I have a lovely, period-appropriate container to keep my tools in!
I am so pleased with the basket that I can't resist adding a few extra photos, just to show how well everything fits inside.
