Chinese Fisherman's 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 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. This particular example is further decorated with painted Chinese characters on the handles. It has achieved great character over time, but remains in remarkable condition as a testament to its craftsmanship. We love it for firewood, toys, wastepaper or anything you want stored beautifully.
