Boxes & Baskets

Chinese boxes and baskets are derived from a multitude of very practical applications. They were used for tea, opium, pillows, gift giving, food containers, artist and scholars’ supplies, bathing and an array of other household chores.

Most are ingeniously engineered using a minimum of raw material resources and many are highly decorative as well a utilitarian.

Box and basket decoration is often informative in identifying and dating individual pieces.
