Current customer rating: (3) based on 87 votes
Beautiful panel of silk embroidery. The scene shows two Birds of Paradise sitting on limb of peony tree. The silk is lovely Ivory color and the embroidery is gorgeous colors too many to list. The stitches are delicate and very skillfully done. The panel measures 23" 14". As to the age of the item, can only state that it has been in my family for at least 70 years. The panel is displayed for this listing on framed board but will be shipped without the board and frame. It will be wrapped in tissue and rolled into tube for shipping unless the purchaser makes other arrangements with me. If the purchaser wants to insure the item, please allow for that when placing your bid. can only guess that this panel may have been part of kimono as the edging appears to have been trimmed from something else. It is obviously in need of restoration for the wrinkles but there are no holes or snags on the panel. There is brown smudge which is displayed in the last photo. Be assured, that when you purchase this item, great care will be taken to ensure it's safety in shipping and shipped promptly. Please view my Ebay seller feedback where buyers have commented positively about the quality of my items and the exceptional packaging. Thank you for stopping by. Note: 2/23/17... just added picture of the back side of panel for your inspection.
