This curved wooden basket is made from pine, produced in the late nineteenth century in the eastern Chinese province of Jiangsu. It is made from pine wood, shaped and joined into shape and fitted with an elegant carved handle. The basket would once have been used to carry cooked foods such as rice cakes or bau buns, with the lid helping to keep the contents warm.
