Antique Chinese Covered Food Basket
Reddish brown lacquer bucket with lid and handle. The angled lid and bucket are accented with beaded edges and delicate bands of black and gold. The lid is hand painted with a gentleman walking with a parasol in a rocky landscape, framed by a scalloped border. Bucket's main surface features beautiful floral representations with birds. The remainder has flowers and leaves. An attractive accent to any interior.
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.
