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.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
