Name: Sticky Rice Basket
This is a small sticky rice basket of the type used daily by all Lao people to keep the stick rice warm and protected after cooking, and also used as a "lunch box" for taking on trips or to the fields for lunch away from home. This basket is well smoked, giving a desirable color (and in Laos, insect protection) and appears to be aged, but unused.
