This vintage hard-to-find basket is constructed out of woven bamboo in such an intricate pattern it has a three dimensional appearance. The edge around the oval base is a woven rope-like pattern with the body of the dome composed of a hexagonal star-like pattern. The top has an intricate web-like design serving as the base for attachment of a woven spherical handle.

Originally this piece was designed to be a dual purpose food cover. It would protect the food from insects while serving as an amazing focal point of design for special festive occasions.

We would suggest considering using this as a lampshade for a smaller table lamp on a dresser, console or night stand. This level of detail should be appreciated up close and one can only imagine the amazing shadows the woven designs would cast when lit. Use in a variety of interior settings from Organic Modern, Boho, Tropical or Coastal.
