The age, weaving and patina on this antique Cambodian basketry covered bamboo container from an old Sydney private collection make it a very special piece. The fine fibre, detailed geometric pattern and deep patina are exceptional. Outstanding condition and clearly old and well used. To my embarrassment, however, I listed it as a lime tube when it is in fact an old document container for objects such as rolled up scrolls, deeds to property and other precious papers, which is a lot rare than a lime tube. Height 25.5 cm / 10 inches, diameter 6 cm / 2 ½ inches.
