An intricately woven bamboo ikebana basket of globular form on a round base. Its unusual handle is carved out of a bamboo section with keyhole design and secured to the body with bold shrimp-like stitches, a v-knot at the apex. The overall openwork is a lozenge pattern bisected by small bands of twining and woven with two-toned stained bamboo. The nether side is as beautiful as the body with fanning bundled- bamboo strands transitioning into a herring bone pattern, the artist Koko sai incised signature plaque on base. This rare basket is in very good condition with minute surface wear commensurate with age and use. Height: 17”, width: 8.5” Taisho /Showa Period, Japan
