Qing Dynasty Pine Basket
Check out all our beautiful antiques.
Baskets made from bamboo, wood, or willows have been widely used since the early times in China.
This red and black pine wood basket dates from the early to mid-1800's and was mainly used for holding supplies or storage at that time. The upper and lower two-story design is simple in workmanship and has an ornate painted lid. The lid has a painted lacquer design with black, gold and red, showing two warriors chasing a knight, depicting a scene of battle. The outer circle is painted with four classic Chinese auspicious symbols: fan, gourd, flower and flute.
It offers a striking and functional accent for any modern home décor.
