  • Betel Basket from Sumba

    From the island of Sumba, this old betel basket is of a complex design and weave: a 6-petalled stylized flower ‘sprouts’ from a top rimmed by small three-dimensional shapes; the bottom has woven ‘feet’. Finely woven raised borders add definition and detail to both top and bottom. It is an especially whimsical piece of utilitarian art. Condition is good, tho with a bit of damage to three-dimensional protrusions and the flower. It is priced accordingly.

    Size: 10″h x 6.5″w

  • Gathering Basket from Borneo

    This handsome basket has an elegant shape which is complemented by the openness of the weaving and the decoratively carved wood struts to which a nicely woven carrying strap is attached. This is a traditional design from Borneo. Nicely sized, this could be used in many ways. (please see AC152 for its mate)

  • Iban Basket from Borneo

    These handsome baskets are very much in the tradition of Iban weaving, as the patterns are similar to those used on textiles such as ‘kain kebat’ and ‘pua kumbu’. The three part color scheme is artfully rich, making a grouping of these baskets particularly handsome. This one has a different design on each side. These are becoming difficult to find in Indonesia, especially in good condition and with well-executed, visually complex patterns. 2nd half 20thc.
