Japanese Shrine Ema of Merchant Ships
A oblong shinto shrine votive plaque depicting three merchant ships sailing. The three ships are displaying banners with the name of the ships.

The ema board was dedicated on September of the first year of Keio (1865) by Hiranumaya. The ema was done by Ensai Fujiwara Masatoshi. Age: Late Edo Period. Size: Height 25.75" Width 1.5" Length 60"
