    African Storage Basket
    One handle w/ a conical lid that looks to be leather.
    I believe from Ethiopia
    Age? no clue
    just over 21" tall

    It has a wonderful almost sweet smell when you take the lid off....what is this smell I wonder?

    Purchased this Giant from a local thrift store.

    I'm going to use this to store my seeds I have harvested from my outside plants for next season. Right now I have my seeds stuffed in pottery pieces all around the house ;) now they will be in one place and easy to find come next spring.
