Age:

Meiji Era 1880's

Measurements:

Width 27 1/4 inches ( 69.2 cms )
Length 28 inches ( 71.2 cms )

Condition:

Very Good, there are two small holes and two pin holes, see photos. Stitching around the edge of the fukusa has broken in places, see photos. The reverse of the fukusa has some marks and a cut near the bottom, see photos. These flaws are to be expected in a textile of this age and do not detract from a superb piece !

Description:

This is a lovely embroidered silk fukusa from the Meiji Era. The design is one of the more unusual subjects and depicts a famous Japanese tale. An only son's parents are ill and the son knows they like, very much, eating new bamboo shoots but it is winter so these are impossible to find. The son is determined to find some and trudges through the snow, a long way from home, he hunts and hunts and suddenly a miracle happens and there in the snow he sees new bamboo shoots peeking out. He takes them home to his parents who are very happy. The tale, of course, has a moral, persevere and you will succeed !
