Product Description

Antique Chinese Wedding Basket Circa 1900 (1 of 2) This piece is a fine example of a late Qing Dynasty Chinese Wedding Basket that was used for gifts of food and more throughout the 16th to early 19th centuries. It has the original finish of a reddish brown color with darker accents woven in. It is lacquered clear with sturdy hand carved wooden side handles fastened in place by decorative brass hardware. There is a separate brass, ornate swivel handle at the top and two-tiers inside for gifts of food and other trinkets for the wedding couple. As shown in the photos, the food trays separate, and even the lid can be inverted to serve. The trays fit snugly into one another providing storage and carrying ability. The bamboo and reed weaving of this style of basket is intricate. In good shape for its age, and very sturdy. There is some noticeable wear consistent with age, notably in the patina and also some chips in the outer edges. Could be used functionally, decoratively or even as a small side table. Great in store displays. Dimensions: 21" tall or high X 15" round diameter. The handle when up would extend the height by 1.5 to 2". Each section and removable tray is about 7" in depth.
