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.
