A rare Tunbridge Ware needlework basket with a swing handle decorated in green black and gold in the Chinese style with figures painted on all sides on a red ground. This is one of the simulated finishes often associated with George Wise Senior of Tonbridge and also with some Brighton makers such as the Morris family and it was intended to represent red lacquer work, which arrived in Europe from the East and became very popular as a finish on furniture and decorative objects in the 18th century.

Circa 1810 - 1820.

Simulated finishes applied to a whitewood ground were relatively uncommon on Tunbridge Ware but are most frequently found with a black ground intended to represent japanning, or with a faux tortoiseshell finish or  painted to represent more exotic timbers.
