Basket making is an ancient and humble craft, but in the hands of a skilled weaver a simple willow basket can become a truly beautiful work of art. This lidded tabletop basket was made in China long ago, and the artisan’s mastery is evident: the strong, flexible willow strips are skillfully intertwined into a rhythmic pattern. Any remaining gaps were then filled with lacquer to create a watertight seal and accentuate the woven pattern. The basket has worn beautifully with time, but remains in remarkable condition - a testament to its craftsmanship. We love this petite woven basket simply displayed as a decorative object.

“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.”
