Woven from the tough fiber of the makenge root, these rare wedding baskets are gifted to a new bride by her mother or in-laws, and passed down from generation to generation. The basket's design is created by the repairs of years of use.
The baskets are considered to be collector's items can be up to 50 years old. The baskets' age increases their value and guarantees more character, including raised grass designs.
This basket measures approximately 20" diameter and 4.5" deep; it is deeper than many of our other antique makenge baskets.
Please note that these antique baskets will show signs of wear.
