A traditional Chinese wedding basket of four tiers. Originally used to bring food and sweets as a gift for a wedding party. Likely dating from the early Twentieth Century the basket is made from rosewood with hand painted scenery depicting flowers, foliage and birds. With three removable tiers and a lid which all stack onto each other this item is highly sought after due to its oriental Chinese origins.
As can be seen from the pictures one of the bands enclosing a tier has pulled away from the edge. There are various knocks and bumps as would be expected for the items age although the basket is generally in good condition. Please study the pictures.
