Hayakawa Shokosai I was the first Japanese basket artist to sign his works. These elegant miniature baskets are dated 1885 and are made from bamboo, rattan, hemp leaf, and more. They’re perfect for holding little sweets that go with sencha tea (roasted green leaves). You can see these and more in our Japanese baskets galleries. Also, doesn’t this look like a painting?
