Subject:Japanese Gathering Basket With Pottery Bowl
Posted By: Kevin Donnelley Mon, Oct 22, 2018 IP:

This fully functional, footed gathering basket with a plain well rounded pottery bowl inside the woven basket has many similar characteristics to the pottery bowls wrapped in openwork woven baskets which were produced on the island of Awaji for the decorative market, 19th- early 20th century. A link is provided below for some examples from Awaji for comparison
I am hoping to learn more about the tradition surrounding gathering baskets of this kind, if there is a name for them, and a possible dating,

H: 5 3/4"; 14.6 cm

Thank you for looking

Kind regards
