This lacquered Chinese carrying basket impresses with a prim, balanced form of intricately woven split bamboo. A celebratory form traditionally used for carrying food or delivering gifts, the lidded basket has a rounded body elevated by a footed base and surmounted by an arched handle, both of thick strips of painted bamboo. Brushed atop a red-brown lacquer, the basket’s lid is painted with a contrasting black motif of orchids, leafy foliage and stars.

Minor breaks to bamboo weave.

What They're Saying

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“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.”
