This hard-to-find basket was made on Romblon in the central archipelago region of Visayas. It is constructed out of the kokolongkoy vine in a twilled or roping pattern around the edges with three slightly blackened vines used to produce subtle rows of design. In the center, the vines have been connected/knotted in a geometric web-like pattern. This piece was used as an open screen or drying tray and would be perfect for a serious basket collector.

Due to its delicate construction, we would suggest displaying this on a wall in a residential or commercial Wabi Sabi, Organic Modern, Boho or Rustic interior setting. 

Place of Origin: Romblon, Visayas Region, Philippines

Date of Manufacture: 1950s-1960s

Condition: Very Good

Wear: Consistent with age. One piece of the webbing has become separated. This does not distract from this piece's decorative appearance. Please refer to pictures.
