This small painting on paper dates from the early to mid Japanese Showa period (1928-1989) and features images of Japanese cranes. This original ink-on-paper piece may have been used as an original art template by kimono pattern-makers. Bits of Japanese writing can also be seen here and there on the paper. This unique Japanese art piece is in poor condition with some small holes, tears and creases. There are also some marks and stains as well as a darkened patina of age. A wonderful candidate for framing and display.
