Antique Asian Food Basket

35% Off


Antique bamboo and wood lidded food tray in striking red and black lacquers with a green-painted bamboo accents. Lid retains some of the hand painted design that involves a circular border with bamboo leaves and a ribbon device around a diamond shape. Some wear is apparent, but adds to the charm. These food trays were generally used to transport food to a neighbor's/family member's home and left as gifts.

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.

Silk Road Collection offers many types and styles of Asian boxes, baskets and buckets.
