    The items above consist a collection of baskework I collected during my travels over the past forty years or more.
    The collection of basketworks include baskets from SouthCarolina, native American baskets, baskets from West Africa and Indonesia, just to name a few.
    Some of the finest basket work in Indonesia comes from Lombok. The spiral woven rattan work is very fine and large baskets are woven using this method, or smaller receptacles topped with wooden carvings are most popular.
    This small basket in particular has a nicely carved lizard atop that is decorated with mother of pearl.
    I welcome any and all information pertaining this item.

      I agree with you about the Lombok pieces. I have some examples too. I love how they integrate wood into their work.
