||Late Meiji to Taisho period, ca1900/20's.
||Painting size: 13 x 50 1/2.
||Painting itself is of grey and black "sumi" inks on light tan paper.
||Entire "kakejiku" (hanging scroll) is 17 3/4 x 76 overall.
||Light tanish paper (artwork) mounted on dark green/white-patterned paper; silver patterned tan silk
"ichimonji" brocade top/bottom; lacquered dark brown wooden end-pieced bottom roller.
||Good to Very Good.
(Some wear (mostly lower left mounting) and wrinkling; soiling to bottom roller. Hangs nicely.)
||Attractively painted image of Daruma, with wonderfully life-like facial expression--nicely mounted as a hanging
scroll. A unique, truly one-of-a-kind artwork.
