DESCRIPTION: A Japanese fukusa of brocade silk in a supplementary weft weave with both silk and gold metallic threads forming the design of a large crane with wings encircling various sea treasures. Used a gift cover and traditionally draped over a gift given for birthdays or New Years, the choice of an appropriate fukusa suited to the occasion was an important part of the gift-giving ritual. This one has been matted and set in a handsome burl frame. C.1920; wear to threads in a few areas. DIMENSIONS: 24 1/4" square in frame (61.6 cm).
