There is a mail-order house called "Frontgate" which offers the following:
"These exquisite hampers are beautifully hand-woven by European
masters using only the finest golden full-willow. Hampers are
then fitted with tanned, full-grain leather straps and stylish
buckles. Each service contains the proper number of elegant,
8" hand-painted porcelain plates, each one is different. Select
classic European automobiles (YES!) or English hunt scenes. Each is
reminiscent of open motoring and the English countryside where
picnicking originated. Also with each hamper: stainless flatware,
waiter's corkscrew and opener, oiled wood cutting board, acrylic
hollow-stem goblets, two generously sized food containers with
lids, cotton-blend napkins and a nice 52" x 52" picnic blanket.
The service for six contains two blankets and two cutting. boards.
Contents are thoughtfully packed with ample room for your
supplies. A most memorable gift. Please specify classic auto
or hunt theme."

Order number and customer serice:
The catalog shows really neat hamper with belts to hold plates to top
of open lid which is hinged and has side straps to keep from falling back.
Flatware also is mounted to inside of top lid. Very elegant looking, though
a little pricey for me.
The standard disclaimers apply. I have interest in this company,, etc.
