It features a regal form that derived from the classic Chinese basket but with a decisively Japanese touch, with the use of the natural roots as the handle. Appears to be made from "sooted" bamboo (susutake in Japanese), the bamboo materials collected from traditional thatched-roof houses that had been exposed to decades of smoke from a hearth or cooking fire, the basket displays a deep, rich, dark reddish brown color that is hard to attain by color-lacquering. The basket shows several techniques alternating between mat plaiting and pine needle plaiting on the upper and lower portion, the mid body features a double wall with an armor plaiting on the exterior. The base was done in a chrysanthemum plaiting. A stunning piece for a serious collector.It is 19.75"h by 10.5 in dia (widest part).
