This unusual wooden bowl was carved from a single piece of rootwood to resemble a woven market basket, complete with an arched handle. Guided by currents in the wood grain, the basket is shaped with irregular edges and undulating curves, continuing a tradition of rootwood sculpture that was popular throughout the Qing dynasty. With a smooth texture that calls to be touched, this carved basket is wonderful as a fruit bowl or tabletop planter.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
