A large flower basket of globular form with round rattan base and broad shoulders, its forked handle secured to the rim with ribbon-like wraps, a v-knot at the apex. Fine twining characterizes the rim and foot, while an intricate hemp- leaf weave along the body is superimposed by vertical inserts of lighter, speckled bamboo strands. This regal karamono (Chinese style) ikebana basket is in very good condition with only minor surface wear, commensurate with age and use. Height: 20”, diameter: 13” Late Meiji /Taisho Period, Japan
