Lacquered bamboo basket


Early 20th century

  • Bamboo
  • 42cm wide x 30cm deep x 34cm high

This woven bamboo basket has been made to last. The material is thick and sturdy with multiple strands making the handle. It has received a number of layers of lacquer. Lacquering was a time-consuming and expensive process that preserved the underlying material and added to the aesthetic feel. That it was done on a utilitarian item such as this shows a high degree of concern to make a piece that will serve for a very long time.
