Name: Small Rice Basket
A nicely used small sticky rice basket with a warm patina, this double-walled, lidded, bamboo basket is an excellent example of this type of household tool. After stick rice is cooked over the fire, it is placed in baskets such as this to stay warm and bug-free to wait for a meal, or it is used to take food on a trip or to the fields as a lunch box. This basket has been well used and smoked, and has very minimal bamboo cracking damage from appropriate use which adds to the authenticity of the piece.
