Antique Japanese Tea Ceremony Flower Basket c.1920
This is an ultimate example of the Japanese flower basket for use in the art of Ikebana and Tea. A rich patina and the essence of wabi-sabi. The basket is unsigned in the Japanese 'wagumi' style but it offers us a top class masterpiece. The bamboo has been aged and leeched and then woven using a fine plait and with intertwined bamboo swirling around the length of the basket. Absolutely great condition. c.1920. (21" x 7") (54cm x 18cm). EMS Shipping/Insurance to USA or Western Europe $65.
