    I'm a novice collector and don't know much about the history of my newly acquired baskets. I'd be interested in knowing the age and origin of any of the baskets pictured, particularly the tall lidded one. The four woven suitcase baskets sat in an attic for the last 60 years or so and are in mint condition. Can anyone enlighten me? I think they are beautiful and display them in front of my fireplace. Thank you!

      I think the tall lidded basket might be Buka Ware, PNG

      The suitcases might be PRC 1940's bamboo production pieces, sold in sets
