Dark openwork bamboo basket w/wooden base, possibly Dayak Borneo Indonesia
Split bamboo, rattan and wood.
14.5 inches wide 16 inches tall. 5.25 inches across at the base. 1.7 lbs.
Good condition. Some of the vertical bamboo columns have broken from use, but in very stable condition.
Deep rich color of the wood and bamboo. The wooden square base gives it strength and stability so it sits flat. Spaced vertical strips of split bamboo create the walls and gives it air flow. They are held in with bands of woven rattan that creates its strength. The top three inches switch from rattan back to bamboo which is then secured by a heavy bamboo rim. Similar baskets are found attributing them to the Dayak of Borneo.
