    Antique Red, Black & Gold Wedding Basket

    Tiered baskets such as this example made of woven cane and wood and then lacquered in black and red. The baskets were used in the elaborate wedding rituals and were used to transport wedding gifts during the ceremony. Applique figures showing daily life activities such as fishing and farming.

    The example here has obvious age. An early twentieth century dating is consistent with the patina that the basket has developed. There are losses to the lacquer and some minor usage-related rubbing to the gilding. Most age-related wear is to the top cover. Overall, the basket is in good condition.
    This Vietnamese example is quite rare in this particular format. Even with the reaks and cracks, it will still provide a wonderful accent for a home.
