The Cottage Shop offers a variety of Limoges Basket Boxes. Basketry is an ancient art which consists of interweaving fibers, twigs, grasses and various other materials to create a container. Many cultures place basketry among their creation myths. In ancient Mesopotamia mythology, they believed the creation of the earth involved a reed mat. The god Marduk of Babylon plaited a wicker hurdle on the surface of the waters which was the base in which land was created. In West Africa, the Dogon believe that their first ancestor received a square bottom basket with a round mouth that served as a model in which the world system was built. The round base represented the sun and the square bottom represented the sky. Many cultures associate baskets with females. Native women were bearers and gatherers while men were hunters. In eastern Paraguay, the Guayaki Indian women are considered bearers and when a woman dies, her last basket is burned in a ritual to represent her burden dying with her.

Basketry style differs through the centuries and between cultures. Traces of baskets were found in the Egyptian pyramids. The oldest basketry found in Egypt dates back to the Neolithic period. Basketry found in excavations had the coil technique which was popular among Egyptians households. The coil technique involves winding up the fiber like a snake while stitching it every quarter of an inch or so. The Native Americans of the southwestern area of the US have long used the coiling technique. When explorers traveled to new lands, they traded goods that were contained in baskets. In West Africa, the art of coiling with sweetgrass was born centuries ago. It was brought to the U.S. with the African slaves and is still practiced today by their descendents. In Asia, splint weaving is a technique that uses flat materials like reed and cane. These materials are found in the rainforest of Indonesia. The vines of the calamus rotang are transported by barge to ports where they can export to China.  In East Asia, twined basketry fashioned out of thin strips of bamboo are used as fish traps and cages.

The Limoges Venice Picnic Basket Box has a luring scene of a gondola in the canal of Venice and includes porcelain plates with detailed images, spoons, glasses and a blanket.

Baskets have evolved to decorative possibilities. Their vast contrasting colors and textures make them popular and influenced other art forms. The unique braided designs have been reproduced as wood, metal and clay. In the Central African Congo, there have been notable examples of interlacing decorations carved on wood. Frankish artisans in the Merovingian period created basketry motifs engraved into metalwork. In 18th century Europe, molded basketwork designs were developed to decorate porcelain.

Baskets are continued to be used all over the world. They are consistently used for receptacles for preparing and serving food. Sometimes close plaiting baskets are even coated with a waterproof solution in order to hold liquids. Amazonian Indians use baskets in extracting toxic juices from manioc pulp. Africans use them for beer making. Japan uses baskets with meshes to strain tea.   

The Limoges Blue Oriental Style Basket with A Rose is designed in an open style with cherry blossoms painted around the base.
