Antique 24.5' Long Japanese Noboribata Boys Day Flag, Hand Painted Folk Textile:
Up for offer is a one-of-kind antique, authentic hand painted Noboribata from Japan. These banners are hung outside of houses during Boys Day. The Japanese Boy’s Day Flag is from the later Meiji era (also called Noboribata) . I personally do not know the exact date but this one is said to be from early 1900's. It is hand painted with 2 Samurai’s on both sides and is signed on the bottom (see photos). The fabric is woven and looks like linen, maybe it could be cotton, I do not know. It was suspended lengthwise from a bamboo pole. It is in fine condition with some very minor imperfections in the cloth that are minimal. The Flag painted images are still very vivid and in fine condition for its age. I have never seen another one like it. It is quite rare I believe to be here and not in Japan. It could be draped on a ceiling or hallway, suspended full length vertically in a room with a tall ceiling. Again, This Flag does have some very minor soiled spots from being used but has no rips or tears. Measures 24.5" long and 27 inches wide. This is a single panel Flag. It is not two panels sewn together. Please inquire for additional info or photos. International Buyers – Please inquire for additional international shipping cost to your country prior to offerding.
