Dong Basket from Southwest China
Beautifully designed and made, this old basket is from the Dong people in southwest China. Very skillful use of bamboo and small vines combine to form highly detailed patterns and ornament. The flared shape is very pleasing with an elegantly designed handle of four strips of bamboo. A lovely patina attests to its age. Condition is very good.
