Fine Antique Chinese Triple Woven Double Happiness Lidded Wedding Basket
This was an incredibly complex piece to make. The depth and complexity of the work is simply stunning
It took a skilled basket maker many many months to make this piece due to the intricacy of the weaving in every single area - from the base to the fine triple layer open work on the sides, the banded & patterned edges, and the amazing top of multiple layers.
Mostly likely made in Southern China, Canton in the 1880's - 1900's.
A very collectable and rare basket.
Dia 15", H7.5".
Condition - wear to one side of the lid about 2cms long. See photo.
