This is an absolutely beautiful and dramatic low, jar-shaped ikebana basket, its pedestal base gently curving to a compressed body of unique form. Finely lacquered strips of madake bamboo are woven in a tight mat -plaiting, two small handles on the shoulder in simple-wrapped design, defining its symmetry. The etched signature of bamboo master Chikuunsai II can be found on the base; includes tomobako, copper-lined otoshi and original signed cloth. This basket is in excellent condition with no breaks, splits or restoration. Height: 5.25", diameter: 13.75" Showa Period, Japan
