A Good Coco de Mer Nut (Lodoicea Maldivica) Basket
Polished, carved and worked with a handle
First Half of 20th Century
Dimensions: 27 cm long x 26 cm wide x 12 cm deep
An especially sensuous example of this curious and collectible natural history object.
The lobes each opened to one side to act as a basket with a handle, trellis pattern to the rim.
Some ink marks to the interior where seemingly once used as a pen tray.
