Old basket with painted persimmons on lid. When I acquired this I was told it is Chinese, certainly possible, and I cannot determine age. It is very sturdy, tightly woven, lid fits well. It is in excellent condition, no broken or missing wicker, with only some rubbing to the painted edge of the lid. The lid is charmingly painted with what looks like two persimmons, but of course they could be peaches or oranges. Can be used for storage as well as display.
Measures 10.5 inches by 7.5 inches by 4.25 inches.
