Vintage Kaguru Basket from Tanzania - Small - 14" x 10"

$399.99

From Tanzania, East Africa, these baskets are used the same way all other similar baskets are used everywhere else in Africa. They are the primary vessel for storage and transportation of grain, fruit, vegetables and any other food item. Baskets of this type are often seen in markets containing food for sale there. The patina on the rims and side of this basket suggests it was handled often. There is residue of some sort on the interior surfaces which proves they were often in use in the way I have described.

After 36 years of traveling in Africa and buying similar African items, we thought we had seen it all. These are truly amazing baskets, at least to us.

This basket measures 14" x 10" (35.5cm x 25.5cm)
