An impressive peony-style basket, its base worked with a unique textile design. The mat-woven body is segmented by vertical lines of banding and insect stitches, and most unusual, a layer of red lacquer lining the interior. Its double-twisted handle, looping high and squared off at the top, is geometrically wrapped, emphasizing its overall sculptural quality. This exquisite and rare bamboo basket is in very good condition with only minor rubbing to the lacquer from age and use. Height; 25.5” 19th Century, Japan
