Chinese Antique Painted Food Basket
Chinese basket in a golden brown lacquer with hand painted details. Beautifully arched handle of wooden slats held together with rattan bindings and brass details, with charming brass handle with pierced 'wings'. Basket is octagonal and bows out over a recessed base. Painted scenes depict birds and flowers with curvilinear borders all in black and gold.
The Chinese designed an elaborate array of wooden and woven baskets, boxes, and buckets to carry and store things. Some were styled around specific uses--picnics, carrying fish, rice, or water. Some were used for special occasions like carrying "sweets" to a wedding party or a Chinese New Year celebration.
Today, many seem whimsical but always make a great accessory. Use them to hold your keys and mail, magazines, and hand-towels.
