Japanese Woven Bamboo Brazier by Maeda Chikubosai I

$ 8,000
  • Description
    An important piece of bamboo basketry art by Maeda Chikubosai I (1872-1950), circa 1920-30s. The body of the bamboo brazier was made with smoked bamboo (susudake) and rattan and with a built-in copper liner brazier. Mat plaiting, diagonal plaiting and twining were used to construct the robust body while hexagonal plaiting was used for the base. It is signed on the base Chikubosai Kore o tsukuru (Chikubosai made this). The copper brazier has clear patina of being used for fire. The piece is however incredibly preserved in fine condition.
    A pair of nearly identical braziers are illustrated in the book "Baskets Master Pieces of Japanese Bamboo Art 1850-2015 page 392, illustration 163 (as shown).
    Chikubosai I was from the Kansai Region and active in Sakai, Osaka prefecture. He was instructed by Wada Waichisai I ((1851-1901).
