UPDATE: the going eBay rate for this item is around $300-$400 dollars so I’ve decided to contact the Ikebana Museum in Kyoto to know how to best go about this.
Thank you to everyone who have messaged me regarding your interest with this find.
Looking at this I know that it must’ve taken months to make this. From harvesting the rattan and young bamboo to drying the skin to make the weave, cleaning and bending the bamboo, and intricately putting this all together.
＊ It only seems fair that most proceeds for this will be given back to craftsmen who I will share to the person who will purchase this.
