A very rare 5 panel bride’s noren. The bottom of the curtain has a lovely delicate aqua wash. Traditionally the bride would hang this curtain in the doorway for about 2 weeks after she was married to announce that she was a member of the new family and that she has taken her husband’s family crest. There are a few minor age spots in the cream/off white area, but otherwise the curtain is in excellent condition. The main techniques used in this hand loomed silk curtain are sumi e painting, and gold surihaku. A pair of cranes, a turtle, cherry blossoms, and pine makes up the scene. This piece retains all of its original tassels. Rarely does one of these antique Japanese bride’s curtains come to market. We date this piece late Taisho, 1920 – 1926. It measures 65“ (165.1 cm) wide x 64“ (162.6 cm) long.
