A tall ikebana basket of baluster form upon a rattan pedestal base constructed from thin strands of bamboo. Its looped handle of wrapped bamboo extends high above the body securing its sides with shrimp-like stitches. A braided rim frames a tightly woven, double-walled body. The interior of this fine basket is woven with an intricate herring bone pattern, the exterior an armature of twining and mat plaiting with superimposed vertical slats in lighter hues of bamboo. This elaborate flower basket is signed on an incised plaque on the base by bamboo master Chikuyo and is in excellent condition. Height: 23.5” Late Meiji /Taisho Period, Japan
