A masterpiece of weaving, this lidded basket is finely woven of smoked bamboo strips using a technique known as chrysanthemum base plaiting. Comprised of two woven layers, the interior is patterned with light and dark strips to depict double happiness (囍), a traditional symbol of marriage and conjugal bliss. Resting on a carved base and surmounted by an arched handle, this lidded basket was likely originally used as a carrying box for fine meals, fruit, and other treats.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
