Chinese-style Flower Basket by Tanabe Shochikuunsai


Tanabe Shochikuunsai


Chinese-style Flower Basket

49 x 23.8 x 23.3 cm
Original signed box
Original lacquered water container

A very early and fine basket by Tanabe Shochikuunsai, who was to inherit the Chikuunsai II title in 1936. Early works signed Shochikuunsai, we have seen a few, but none so clearly demonstrating the technique we expect of a full Chikuunsai. This basket has the hallmarks of karamono baskets made in the Chikuunsai line: clarity and elegance of form, exquisite detail and complete structural integrity.
