Small Rich Gathering Basket from Laos/Vietnam
Gathering basket worn on the hip.
Bamboo and rattan.
12 in. tall x 11 in. at the opening X 6 in. at the base. 10 oz.
Very good condition.
Simple cording or rattan vine would pass through the base, loops and wrapped around the shoulder and rest on the hip. Would be used for all types of collecting but home gardens or forest products. Beautiful weave and a rich dark patina show wear and use.
Collected in Northern Thailand 1990’s.
