Chinese Willow Market Basket, circa 1900



It is easy to imagine someone, long ago, walking to market on a beautiful summer day with this beautiful basket slung over their arm. Basket making is an ancient and humble craft, but in the hands of a truly skilled weaver willow branches, like these, can be transformed into a truly beautiful work of art. Young willow branches grow quickly, are strong and flexible, and so are the perfect basket making material. In China willow symbolizes renewal, spring, and immortality.
