Centuries ago, a woven reed fisherman’s basket such as this would have been common in rural China as an everyday item, used until it became worn through. This particular example remains in beautiful condition, and exists today as a lovely collector’s item. The woven basket was darkened with a thin layer of lacquer for a water-tight seal. The willow and reed weave has worn beautifully with time but remains intact - a true testament to the maker’s skill.

“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.”
