Japan Silk Association"
16.5" x 17"
Condition: pin sized hole above signature areas, above "design". Could be from a "tagger gun" from a retail establishment. No scents, no stains.
Prints as special as this make a fantastic wall hanging when matted and framed, or truly, this can be considered "wearable art"
We could find no resources that could help us date this precisely; the colors suggest 1960s.
Modern day pedi-cabs got their inspiration from these charming rickshaws.
