An unusual oval-shaped basket made of natural and leached bamboo with reed handle held in place by intricate wraps and elaborate cicada knots. The basket's robust body is worked with modified hexagonal plaiting, its vertical inserts of leeched bamboo creating a beautiful openwork pattern. Dark mahogany-colored bamboo slats about the rim create a striking contrast to that of the leeched bamboo. This basket is signed "Kyo-Setsu sai" on the base and is in very good condition with no breaks or restoration. Height: 13.5" Showa Period, Japan
