Late Taisho Period C.1920 half-moon bamboo flower basket for ikebana. Bamboo is 'susudake' which is bamboo that has a rich patina from years of hearth smoke in an old farmhouse. When the bamboo from the roof was changed, basket makers prized the susudake for their baskets. This basket has a fabulous 'midare' irregular plaiting with bamboo inserts. H: 38cm x W: 39cm.

Museum quality Edo Period C.1860 zen temple mizubachi. Lost wax cast with a great dragon spout in grand detail and spectacular shishi mythical lion ornament on the top of the lid. The diaper motif on the base is in raised relief and equally spectacular. The spigot on the dragon head is permanent so we are assuming that there was a constant water flow. Very slight indentation on one of the hanging jewels but so slight you can only see at the right angle. H:51cm x W: 43cm. Ask for shipping quote.

Also known as Uzumi or Okame, Otafuku is the name for the female half of a traditional Japanese Kyogen theatre pair She is considered to be the goddess of mirth and is frequently seen in Japanese art. Part of the Kyogen category of masks, this is a character used for the comic interlude in classic Noh plays. This mask carved in the late Meiji Period C.1910 is carved out of cypress and has some wear on the nose and stains but we think it just adds character. Her expression is sublime. H:46cm x W:40cm.

The detailed information of Kogetsu is not available, but the style and the feeling of this basket resembles that of Sasaki Kogakusai, who was active in Tokyo in early Showa period (1926-1940), so we believe that Kogetsu was one of the students of Kogakusai.

Shokosai I was the founder of a basket maker dynasty with Shokosai IV the last of a long line of spectacular craftsman. Shokosai I was born 1815 in western Japan. Died in 1897. This basket was made when he was 79 right before he passed away. The age when he made it is written on the original paulownia wood box lid. The name Shokosai I was also written on the box lid by his son Shokosai II along with the seals. The bottom of the basket is also signed. Shokosai I won many prizes at prestigious Exhibitions and was favored by Emperors and royalty. The basket features a simple but elegant weave and the inner container is also woven which is a first for our eyes. When we saw this basket, the vibration was something out of Sen no Rikyu.
