Willow Storage Box
Shanxi, circa 1900
Originally used a food carrying box, there are two separate sections (used to hold different foods) as well as a shallow lid. It is made from willow with the curved handle being shaped by steaming the wood to a pliable state. The original red, brown finish is still visible, although the majority has worn down to the pale wood underneath. The box also still has the old heavy studs and ironware in place.
