Vintage Asian Round Lidded Basket • Chinese Sewing Basket Jewelry Trinket Box • Brown Black Woven Bamboo
Here’s a deep wicker handled sewing box lined in quilted sprigged cotton, with two interior side pockets for even more organization. Note the charming little (brass, perhaps) hinges that lift up the lid for easy access (see photo close-up #5). The frame is bent bamboo, while the basket is trimmed with a braided fiber that bands the belly and across the top merely for decorative detail.
CONDITION: Good vintage condition: no splits or breaks in the basket; no tears in the fabric lining. The cotton liner on the lid has what looks to me like varnish stain on the edge near the hinges (see close-up of photo #2), and which may thus be original to the piece. Please see all the photo close-ups to ensure that you can love this in its AS IS condition.
DIMENSIONS: 12″ wide at widest; 9 1/4′ front to back; 5″ deep; 11″ to top of handle
