Oval Woven Tool Basket
An old woven basket used as a working tool basket, the top has a shallow space which lets you put aside your small tools, the bottom of the basket is hollow and acts like a cover to keep aside work that you had done halfway. Meant for small handwork tools like knitting, weaving or peeling of vegetables. The top, middle and bottom are secured by a bamboo strip to give it some rigidity and hold it’s shape.
The weave on these baskets are very exquisite, considering these were used by common households. This particular one has beautiful colours, and the Chinese words 連用 have the meaning of this being used together with other tools or baskets; it may also imply that this is a shared basket (within a household or workshop).
