Chinese Paper Mache Rice Basket with Advertising Motif

This is an intriguing and highly fashionable vintage Chinese Paper Mache round rice basket made entirely of Chinese newspaper with colorful advertising papers applied to the outside and the inside made almost exclusively with newspaper print. The completed Paper Mache basket is sealed with shellac. This wonderful piece would have been completed with a wooden lid when in service to store rice.

We spent a little time translating the anglicized Chinese words and got some fun results. For instance, we found the word "KEJIBAO" on the interior newspaper that translated to "Science & Technology News" a word on the exterior advertising "XIANGYAN" translated to "cigarette" and a company name "DAJI" translated to "Blow". We even found a date on one of the newspaper pieces, 5/13/1988.

This lovely paper mache rice basket is a terrific conversation piece and great addition to your home or store decor!

This colorful and decorative vintage Chinese Paper Mache rice basket is in very good condition with a bit of expected wear to the rim and along one side of the basket and along the bottom consistent with age and loving use. There are two small areas inside the basket where a layer or two of paper has come undone. Nonetheless, these characteristics simply add to the charm and historical nature of this wonderful piece. This fabulous basket weighs 6 pounds 11.4 ounces, is 12 inches tall, 12 ½ inches in diameter and the sides taper to a 9-¼ inch diameter base.

Thank you for your interest in this great vintage Chinese paper mache rice basket and please feel free to browse our Ruby Lane exclusive shop, Little River Antiques & Collectibles, for other unique and exciting treasures.
