In the hands of a master craftsperson, the humble woven basket becomes a stunning work of art. This early 20th-century Japanese lidded basket was finely woven of thin strips of smoked bamboo with simple mat plaiting (gozame-ami), framing a central carved medallion of a chrysanthemum flower. Finished in diagonal simple wrapping (bo-maki), six thin handles gracefully arch above the lid, ending in a single coil before converging in a tapered wrapping. Likely used as a decorative storage container, the round footed basket is a captivating centerpiece and an exquisite example of Japanese basketry.
