A large vintage basket with such a great look. The bentwood handle and tightly woven bamboo on this piece are exceptional and it looks amazing from every angle.
This piece is BIG - it stands 23 1/2" to the top of the handle with the basket itself standing 16" tall with a 15" measurement across the top opening.
The bamboo is thick and has a great patina. The handle is a gorgeous in splint oak bent wood which slides into the sides. The handle is also wired for security but it is not really needed as it is sturdy. This has stood the test of time very well. This piece is from the 1960s and an Asian piece. It has a few loose strands around the upper rim of the basket that were wrapped but nothing that detracts from the piece. There are no breaks or cracks in the body of the basket. Tightly woven and clearly wonderful craftsmanship.
This is the type of piece that would look great in any room and it is also functional. It could be used in the bath to hold towels and wash clothes. Placed by fireplace to hold small logs and kindling. It would also be great with long dried or fresh flowers. We placed a creamer and sugar beside it in the last photo so you could get an idea of the size.
A great vintage basket with so many options for decor.
