This handsome bamboo basket from early 20th century China is a fine example of the care that was lavished on the creation of everyday utilitarian items by Chinese artisans. Delightful woven designs on the handle, knob and basket edges are emphasized in red, and a pattern of painted black designs encircles the lid. The bottom of the basket is recessed and rests atop a red and black bamboo base. The basket is strong, light, comfortable to carry and attractive. It is in excellent condition. Dimensions: height to top of handle 13 ½” (34.3 cm), diameter 13 ¾” (35 cm). (SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM)
