Name: Lao Theung Storage Basket
This immense Lao Theung square-bottomed double-walled rattan storage basket radiates a rich, aged patina. The basket is framed with bamboo strips and has a wooden base. The curved rattan handles wrap lovingly around the well-formed, unusually-shaped lid. Hemp forehead carrying strap still attached, and a jungle nut adorns the hemp closure twine. Excellent condition; there are some ink mark stains on one wooden base-panel.
