African Ceremonial Serving Basket Fruit Bowl 20.5"D X 4"H Handcrafted in Ghana
Handcrafted in Ghana, this very large, vintage, open, curved, basket was used for ceremonial serving, and can be used as a fruit basket. The coils are much larger and thicker than those found in the Ghana market baskets. This basket shows very little signs of use. The natural grass fiber has been enhanced by the coloring using burgundy, green, teal and purple, to make the design.
The curved sides of this bowl/tray will hold the fruit or delicacy being served. This basket also makes a great fruit bowl and a beautiful centerpiece. It is also used to protect food when it is placed over a serving plate or bowl.
The first two photos show the open basket in its serving position, the last photo shows the basket upside down;
it can be washed by wetting in cool water. This item was rinsed with a hose the day before the photo was taken.
Approximate Dimensions: 20.5"D X 4"H
