A stunning piece of needlework silk on silk depicting Three beautiful Cranes and foliage. In beautiful condition for age. This and the other piece we have listed came together with the Japanese porcelain pieces we have also listed....all kept in the same family since the early 1900's. The item measures 55 x 50 cm approx (22" x 20"). I'm advised that these were done as either cushion covers, or for framing as art pieces. Certainly when framed and hung they would be just beautiful. They have been folded and kept in a drawer for around 100 years so do need professional pressing to remove the fold marks. The Crane is considered to be a Holy Creature in Japanese culture and brings Good Fortune and Long Life.
