I have two remarkable and fabulous panels which are extremely rare. This is the first. I believe they were used in temples. The gold was beaten onto fine paper and cut into narrow strips, which are then glued to the silk ground I wonder whether these were produced in China for the Japanese market? These pieces would look stunning mounted and framed. We can do this for you.
Large gold motifs of mon and cloud forms, comprising strips of gold on paper, couched onto a woven saffron coloured silk ground, green selvedge, a loose linen backing.
29.5 x 23 in; 75 x 59 cm
Considering the age this piece is in remarkable condition. The left hand size has a small hole (pencil end) and a little wear. A few strips have come away from the ground. The gilding has worn in places. See photos and ask for more.
