For centuries, basketry formed an essential part of all aspects of daily life in the Philippines. This covered basket, crafted of woven reed, bamboo and wood, may have been used to secure household items. Clothing and blankets, in particular, would have been kept fresh and dry in lidded containers such as this one. Once created for everyday use, this basket can still function as storage or be put on display as an example of rustic beauty and craftsmanship.

“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!”
