Exceptionally Large Antique Japanese Hand Embroidery Depicting Herons in Silver Tones

- +

This exquisitely executed and extremely large (just under two metres) piece of Japanese embroidery is stitched in fine silk on a silk linen mix background.  The subject is four herons flying around a tree with leaves and floral decoration in each corner.  The colours of this piece, while muted, are rather beautiful and have a lovely luminescence to them.  We bought this piece, alongside another in beige, brown and pink tones from the same collection which is also listed on our website.

Please note that due to a lighting error the top of this looks dark in the wide shots. This is not the case.  For a true colour representation of the top of this, the image of Streett standing with both embroideries is the best reference  we will replace these photographs as soon as possible. 

Newly framed.
