Chinese Bent Handle Willow Basket, circa 1900

$388

About

Basket making is an ancient and humble craft, but in the hands of a skilled weaver a simple willow basket can become a truly beautiful work of art. This bent handle basket was made in China long ago, and the artisan’s mastery is evident: the strong, flexible willow strips are skillfully intertwined into a delicate pattern. It has worn beautifully with time, but remains in remarkable condition as a testament to its craftsmanship.
