Very Good for the age, there are some frays on the super fine embroidery of the crane, see photos. The navy silk has some marks over all, none are very noticable and there is a more distinct mark on the reverse rinzu silk, see photos. The condition is reflected in the reasonable price !
This is a lovely silk fukusa from the Meiji Era with rich, fine embroidered design of hermit riding on the back of a crane. The clouds are gold couching technique and there are 4 silk tassels present. The reverse of the fukusa is quality rinzu silk with floral design. Wonderful to display or collect !
