A rare wagumi-style bamboo basket formed as a tea pot with a rattan handle. Its irregular weave enhanced by a rich mahogany patina. (Inspired by Chinese flower baskets, the Japanese adopted the basket art form and developed a unique wagumi (uninhibited) style. Consisting mainly of thicker slats of bamboo and irregular weaves interspersed by usually other media, such as rattan, wisteria or root wood.) This fanciful ikebana basket is in very good condition with only minor wear. Height: 11”, length: 10” Meiji /Taisho Period, Japan
