A tall, robust bamboo basket constructed in the wagumi style native to Japan. Its body, formed with ribbon-like bamboo strands in two-tone colors and woven in an irregular pattern with bamboo reeds, seamlessly gives way to a moon-shaped handle of twisted bamboo rope. This sculptural basket is full of contrasting textures and colors and is in very good condition. Height: 17.5” Meiji / Taisho Period, Japan
