This hanging Japanese woven bamboo Hanaire, designed as a wall-pocket vase, was popular around 1950s, based on the signature and when this type of container was popular. This type of basket has a bamboo loop for hanging and was traditionally placed on a wall in the Tokonoma alcove, or on a pilaster during the various seasons when cut flowers were in bloom. This is a beautiful formed vase form basket, and is woven from bamboo. It has a natural and gorgeous patina from age, and overall detail and skilled craftsmanship. Signed unidentified craftsman.

Vintage Condition: Excellent as originally made. “As is” with no flaws or cracking, (particularly on the corners), and no affects from aging, and retains the original craft/workmanship.

NOTE: The guest of a Japanese family normally sits in front of the Tokonoma, so that they he can enjoy the display of “art objects" especially prepared for them. These can include Bonsai, Suiseki, Bamboo Wall Vases and scrolls or seasonal artwork, family relics or something that will help the viewer to reflect, meditate or simply enjoy. It is not (always) an opportunity to show off such items but to offer something that is both subtle and a natural compliment for cut flowers.
