Good condition, please see description

Charming palace scene of the Meiji Empress and her ladies-in-waiting. The Empress sits on a platform in the upper right corner, surrounded by a folding screen and a curtain depicting a phoenix. On the left, there are two women in the middle, bowing as greeting. On the right, there is a woman carrying a serving dishwith a yellow cloth draped on it.

Beautifully detailed with vivid colours and relief in the white collars of the kimono. Polishing in the frame of the folding screen and in the black parts of the kimono in the left panel.

Measurements of the diptych: 50.3 x 36.7 cm

In good condition. Two separate panels, margins are still intact. Some folds and a little bit wrinkled. Please see the photos for details.


The diptych will be shipped registered, in sturdy cardboard packaging.
