Rare item. A pair of Hatasashimono (battle flags) made of asa, hemp (left) and plain weave silk (right) with gold painted (kindei) washi sun design. Hatasashimono was used after Sengoku period (late 15th to Late 16th century) to show the samurai's presence, affiliation and class of position. It had been put on the hip in older days (koshi-zashi) but it was put on the back later. They belonged to Hara family. The name in the left asa one is tsutsugaki and one in the right silk one is handsewn with same material as the sun. In excellent condition in an original wood box. Kaei 4 (1851) on the box. Left:82cm x 98cm Right:79cm x 100cm More images available by request.
