Large 19th century rice or vegetable basket made by the mountain people from northern Luzon, the largest island in the Philippine archipelago. This coil basket is perfectly symmetrical has nice warm patina. The coil weaving technique, materials (finely split rattan and nito vine), and design are consistent with baskets made by the Kalinga tribe. This rare and very collectible basket is in excellent antique condition. It tends to lean a little to one side, but I fixed that with a little piece of padded felt underneath. The basket measures about 25" high and 20" diameter. Date circa 1880.
