Up for sale is this beautiful vintage or antique Japanese hand-woven toasted bamboo ikebana hanakago flower arrangement basket with natural branch handle. Converted to a lamp and in great overall condition.
I was told it likely dates to the 1st half of the 20th C, circa 1920s. Gorgeous design and a beautiful and sturdy basket in great condition. Lamp works and both sockets have been tested and it has a nice switch control to make turning on and off the lights very easy. Just the basket itself measures about 18" inches tall and 8" inches wide. With the base and lamp parts, the entire piece measures 26" inches tall and about 9" inches wide.The height of the sockets is variable and you can lengthen or shorten the height via the sliding pole with tightener. Would make a fantastic Japanese basket lamp to use and display, fine addition to a collection, or a great gift!
