Japanese Nobori boys day banner

400.00

This nobori is likely from 40's- 50's (Showa) and is very brightly painted. It is very large and was probably used in Boys Day festivals.
It is 21.5 " x 204". The cloth is hemp- it is more rugged than cotton and smartly so for its intended use. Not too tightly woven and slubs in the weave suggest it may be a home woven cloth. All stitching on it is by hand. As a purposeful vintage textile it is imperfect, but the imperfections are not objectionable (a few stains and unintended brush marks -no holes or tears). The image painted on the nobori is of samurai riding their horses- a familiar boys day banner theme. The hangers can be removed without damaging the main textile.
Price includes proper packaging, shipping and insurance to the US and Canada. Please contact me for a quote to ship outside North America.
