A double sided Edo period Japanese fukusa (ceremonial wrapping cloth or tea ceremony mat) depicting all the Japanese culture auspicious motifs (tsuru cranes, tortoise, geisha dancing fans, the great wave of Kunagawa). This piece of art is hand painted in yuzen (rice paste resist) technique on chirimen silk with the reverse side of red silk brocade, also decorated.
Size: 28 inches x 25 inches (69 cm x 63 cm). Opt for a wall display that is dramatic and easy.
Provenance: Kyushu island, Nagasaki, Japan.
Condition: Excellent vintage for age. Item is authentic. Some foxing, inherent with old, vintage silk is visible and for that reason we reduced the price accordingly.
