Rare and very art deco wood tea shop kanban sign from Uji in south Kyoto, famed for its tea fields and tea production in the 1700`s and 1800`s until the present. Great impact at 87cm tall and 53cm wide. Beautifully carved Kanji Japanese characters reading at the top: Uji; Usu Cha; and Kazu Cha En, the tea company in Uji. Very good condition. Zelkova wood, Taisho Period, C.1920. Ask for shipping quote.
