The gorgeous rattan and wicker buttocks basket is in very good condition. The unfinished raw rattan and wicker wood along with its slightly distressed and worn appearance gives this beautiful basket an oriental Asian charm. There appears to be a maker's mark and date on the outer rim of the basket - MLT 84. The impressive larger size further enhances the already elaborate "buttocks" design - for a lack of better words - it really sticks out. The solid wooden handle and rim make up the larger frame to this beautiful butttocks basket. Under its golden gray-brown rattan wrap is a solid wooden handle that runs a full 360 degrees through the sides and bottom and back around. While the seam is not visible, it is most likely under the rattan wrap. Also, the raw unfinished rattan on this gorgeous basket wraps around wicker skeletal framing that ties into and makes up the fan pattern on the sides. Another great feature of this gorgeous basket can be seen in its two-tone appearance. Even though the wood appears to be raw and unfinished, the basket still has contrasting tones. The contrasting tones in the fan pattern are actually due to the artisan "antiquing/darkening" that section of the basket.
There are some places where the ends of the woven material are sticking out and/or have broken off. However, this is sometimes consistent with aging woven-wood baskets. Also, one of the ends has a break in the woven rattan. However, the wicker skeletal frame is still intact. Therefore, this was most likely due to the end getting punctured with something smaller (since it did not break the wicker framing), it was caught on something and broke when pulled away, and/or the woven rattan broke due to aging. Other than this there are no unnatural holes, loose sections, rotten areas, and/or bad odors. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the basket. The basket has an obvious distressed and aged appearance. While the basket appears to be very clean, there are little areas near the top of the fan pattern on each side near the rim where some type of light splash stain has occurred - see picture to the left of the initials and date - MLT 84. Since they are at the top of the fan pattern on each side near the rim, the occurrence of these little discolorations do not appear to be random. It is highly likely that they are due in part to the application of the antiquing. There could be other little places where water and/or liquid-type stains are actually blending in with the grayish gold color. Therefore, this makes them much more difficult to identify. There does not appear to be any piles of dust, debris, and/or lint. However, there could be some little areas of dust and/or stains in between the woven strips that are not so easily detectable.
The decorative possibilities for this gorgeous rattan and wicker buttocks basket are many. The entryway or living area would be enhanced by the addition of this large rattan and wicker basket. Also, the corner accent table or wall-shelf would welcome this beautiful buttocks basket for its unfinished raw wood appearance. In addition, the growing basket collection would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this larger size rattan and wicker buttocks basket.
The collector will appreciate this gorgeous rattan and wicker buttocks basket for its very good condition, two-tone fan pattern, and larger size.

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:
If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.
***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.
***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.
***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.
***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.
***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.
***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.
***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.
***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.
***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.
***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.
***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
