Beautifully made carrying basket, I imagine it on one’s arm collecting flowers or veggies…
DYK? The writing on the bottom looks like someone's name. 蓮英 means "lotus flower/brave," depending on whether or not it's a noun or adjective. But usually in the context of a name, which the second word (bottom) is quite common in Taiwan, it can mean both.
What is the story behind it? Would ❤️ to know.
Please keep in mind, all of my items are vintage pieces. This means they are NOT new + most of my items are decades old. They may show natural signs of wear + age. I do my best to list any + all flaws in the item description. However, I may overlook small flaws. Please inspect all product photos before purchasing.
