Backpack Basket
Mid 20th century or earlier
Bamboo and rattan
21.5" high x 15  (55 x 38 cm)

From southern Laos, this basket which is woven most of rattan with some bamboo splints, was used for foraging in the forest and/or carrying vegetables.  The lovely color and patina is a result of smoking the basket to protect it from insects.  The lighter color area on the lower back side indicates that it was used.
