Here is a beautiful, fine quality and larger size antique early 20th century Japanese silk embroidered wall hanging depicting large flowers, a bird in flight and butterflies. The lovely soft silk is a pale lemon yellow colour with greens, pinks, whites and brown colours for the bird and the butterflies. This panel has never been used making it a real rarity, it is still loosely stitched to its original waxed paper backing and has remnants of its original shop label in one corner of the paper, along with stamped letters saying 'Japan' and a pattern number. The paper backing can be removed for use by unpicking the stitches and metal hanging rings can be attached to the top of the panel, or this piece can be enjoyed as it is with the original paper backing.
The silk panel itself measures 57.5" inches long by 23.5" inches high, the overall size with the backing paper is 63.5" inches long by 26.7" inches.
This beautiful piece of antique Japanese textile design/silk embroidery is in very good condition as it has been folded with the paper side outermost over the years so the colours and the silk have remained in excellent condition. On close inspection I can see a couple of feint, tiny marks to the surface of the silk. There are some scattered age related marks to the paper backing and paper borders.
