Woven with a delightfully unusual form, this early 20th-century basket was originally used to steam mantou buns in a provincial home in Shanxi province. The boat-shaped basket is formed of willow reeds entwined with a plain weave, and has since been brightly painted to be used for household storage. We love the rustic touch it gives to the home used as a serving tray or vide-poche.

“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.”
