Beautiful 19th century, red lacquered basket has a very unique dome top. The "bun" shaped basket is constructed using solid thick wood. Panels are held together via tension wires. Its unusual wooden handle is rounded on both sides and comfortable to grip. The bun baskets were indeed used to transport buns from kitchen to dining room. It was also used to carry gifts of food from one household to another.
