Bestowed with the name fuki, which literally translates to 'abundance', this generously proportioned basket of bamboo and rattan is intricately woven using various basketry techniques including openwork vertical plaiting, wrapping and knotting.

Tanabe Chiku'unsai II (1910–2000) is the second generation to the Tanabe family of bamboo artists in Sakai City, Osaka. He is particularly known for his works of Sukashi-ami style, producing openwork baskets out of fine bamboo. Tanabe Chiku'unsai II was one of the few selected artists for the 12th Teiten Exhibition (Emperor's Exhibition) in 1931. He was an active member of Nihon Bijutsu Tenrankai (also known as Nitten, Japan Fine Arts Exhibition) after the Asia–Pacific War. In 1952, his 'spiral flower basket' was selected as a special work in the Exhibition and received the honour of the Tokusen Prize. Tanabe Chiku'unsai II's works have been known in various museum collections, including two examples currently in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (acc. nos 2019.424.25a, b and 2019.425.41). 


二代田辺竹雲齋 (1910 – 2000年)乃大阪傳統田辺家族的第二代傳人,以其簡稱精湛鏤空竹編技藝見稱,善以各種圖紋展現獨特的視覺魅力。1931年曾被甄選參與天皇展覽。戰後積極參與日本美術展覧會(簡稱日展)並於1952年獲得特獎殊榮。其著作可見於各地博物館藏,包括紐約大都會博物館(藏品編號 2019.424.25a, b 2019.425.41)。
