This is a very lovely Chinese wedding basket. Unfortunately there is damage to the large stacking outer area. This can be seen in the photos a long crack. There is also areas to the bottoms of some of the layers which will need to be re adjoined. Basket is a true work of art that is worthy of restoration. This basket is from the Republic Era and is dated and signed. Unfortunately, I am unable to translate the characters. I recommend that anyone interested request additional photos of the damage, areas of wood separation and panels with script. This basket measures approximately 12 inches in diameter handle to handle and 18 inches to top of lid. From bottom of basket to top of lid is 13 inches.
