Woven with a delightfully unusual form, this early 20th-century basket was originally used to steam mantou buns in a provincial home in Shanxi province. The boat-shaped basket is formed of willow reeds entwined with a plain weave, and has since been brightly painted to be used for household storage. We love the rustic touch it gives to the home used as a serving tray or vide-poche.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
