Scope and content

Rectangular basket with cover in the form of another similar basket which covers it completely. Woven in this shape with a support provided only by a thick rim indicating that the basket was probably steamed or shaped over a form to obtain the rectangular shape. Weave is unusual - similar to a herringbone weave in fabric. a: corners have been reinformed with leather which is attached to the corners of the basket with thread stitching. On two corners this leather patch has come off leaving remnants of glue and thread stitching. "Large Chinese travelling basket with cover. Blue boarder on 'B'. Used to carry clothes in." b: rim has been decorated with raffia in blue which has been wound around the stiffer outside rim. Some pink raffia has been added over an area of one corner. Pink Raffia has been stitched through the weave of the basket in a line down one side of the top. Stitching on inside around corners shows that this basket must have had corner patches on it.
