I’m excited about this. It is a Japanese motif of a peacock rendered in real feathers under glass or plastic on wood with a woven wicker surround. The background painting is hand painted- not printed. It is in beautiful condition measuring approximately 17 x 4 inches and weighing 2 lbs. 8 oz.
Because of import laws passed in 1929 all imports from Japan must be marked “Made in Japan” or “Japan” or “Occupied Japan”. Otherwise they are most likely early 20th century. This has no marks whatsoever. It is just beautiful and is a nice size with a pliable reed. I have hung it from a secure wire. I am particularly fond of anything unique which I consider this to be as I’ve never seen anything like it combining basketry and hand painting.
