VINTAGE BASKET LOMBOK INDONESIA HAND WOVEN WITH CARVED WOOD HANDLE
Lombok is the first island east of Bali, but it is quite different. The climate is drier and the channel between the two islands is deep. This puts Lombok on the east side of the Wallace Line which means that some of the plants and wildlife are related to those in Australia rather than Asia. Many of the native Sasak people practice Wektu Telu which combines aspects of Islam with Hindu-Buddhist beliefs. Other Sasaks practice Wektu Lima which is closer to orthodox Islam.

Very good vintage condition with traces of age and wear, please look carefully at pictures. Some loss of color, crack on footed base and few stains, still in exceptional condition.
Please look at my other vintage Lombok piece :
Lombok was colonized, first by the Balinese and then by the Dutch. Many Balinese families still live on the island and they do some of the carving of the beautiful, curvilinear figures that decorate the baskets. Their family compounds are marked by the traditional Balinese Hindu shrines, daily offerings and the complex Balinese ceremonial cycle.
There were few cupboards or cabinets in typical Lombok village houses, so baskets of all types and sizes were created and are still used for clothing and trinkets. During a wedding, Lontar Boxes are used to transport dowry textiles while ceremonial baskets are used to present cakes. Some baskets are used for everyday utilitarian purposes such as coffee picking. Baskets are very strong, light and portable. The necessary materials are available from the fields and the forest. They can be worked on whenever there is a bit of spare time.
Rattan (rotan), a wild palm vine, is often used for its durability. The tough, inner core of the vine is coiled to form the main superstructure of a basket, while the outer skin is peeled off in fine, flexible strips for weaving the covering coils of the basket together. Other baskets, for example the nested, stacking ones, are constructed of stained split bamboo and bark. Sometimes carved wood animals or reptiles are added.
Vintage bamboo basket with wood handle lid. Beautiful hand made organic fiber. Great piece used for display or functional storage.
