Early 20th Century Chinese Fisherman's Basket

$388

About

Basket making is an ancient and humble craft, but in the hands of a skilled weaver a simple willow basket becomes a truly beautiful statement. The artisan’s mastery is evident in this early 20th century bent handle basket: the strong, flexible willow strips are skillfully intertwined into a delicate pattern and the wider bands of the handle are simply bent. The careful woven pattern has been further decorated by contrasting finishes of muted red and green. We love it for firewood, toys, wastepaper or anything you want stored beautifully.
