Lan Na Pedestal Basket
Once more common, but now not found often in good condition or without an exaggerated tilt, old pedestal baskets like this were used to present offerings. One can still see this protocol in use when gifts are presented to the royals. This one is rattan and mellowed to a dark golden hue. It has a slight lean, but not so much as to make it unusable. It could hold a collection of small items, or even a freshly baked pie.
