A tall ikebana basket, matte-plaited with bamboo strands of varying thicknesses. Designed with a majestic crescent-shaped handle, the basket’s tapered body with its leached half-segments of bamboo, is positioned on a circular, ratten-wrapped base. Created in elegant, karamono-style, this piece is an excellent example inspired by traditional Chinese baskets for use in the honored tea ceremony. In very good condition with wear commensurate with age. Unsigned. Height: 17.5” Late Meiji / Taisho Period, Japan
