||Entire "kakejiku" (hanging scroll) is 18 1/2 x 71 overall.
||Light tanish silk (artwork) mounted on patterned brownish-green silk with gold flower highlights; different light green silk
used top and bottom; gold-patterned silk
"ichimonji" brocade top/bottom; gold silk brocade
hanging "futai" at top; composite end-pieced bottom roller.
||Very Good to Excellent.
(Faint scattered foxing--otherwise flawless. Quite clean. Nearly wrinkle-free, hangs nicely.)
||An attractively painted clump of four bamboo done in a dark reddish-orange--nicely mounted as a hanging
scroll. A unique, truly one-of-a-kind artwork.
