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 hand-woven example remains in beautiful condition and features a tapered woven body secured to a round wooden rim. The willow and reed weave has worn beautifully with time but remains intact - a true testament to the maker’s skill. Recently darkened to a warm brown, the storied basket is ideal today as a waste bin or storage container.
