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.

“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!”
