BEAUTIFUL, LARGE, HANDLED BASKET FROM THE Solomon Islands. This chain of islands sits East of Papua New Guinea and North West of Vanuatu. The baskets from this area have been said to be some of the most beautiful in the world. This large, spectacular basket is tightly woven with a strong carrying handle. The use of local jungle plant rods is accented with jungle fern fronds woven in light and dark patterns. This basket was woven by an expert that was able to visualize and create a large flower with petals extending up the sides of the basket. We are basket lovers and this basket boggles my mind how the artist was able to weave the design so balanced and perfect while sitting in the shade of a thatched platform. No patterns and no rulers or scale items were used. Just lots of smiles, laughter and good times with her village weaver friends. This is such a great basket to use for a center piece, towel holder, magazine holder or for a flower girl to carry down the aisle for a wedding!

SIZE: One direction the diameter is 16 1/4" and another direction is 15 1/4". Possibly when the handle was attached it pulled the sides inward. Height with handle is: 15". Depth of the basket is: 5 1/2".

Condition is excellent, maybe one tiny break in the wrapping, no broken rods. Handle is strong and good. No odors of any type.

CIRCA: 1980's, basket was collected by us in the field.

Thank you for your interest! We pack carefully! If I overcharge on the shipping, I will refund you. Most important is that the basket is protected and perfect when you receive.
