Assuming this is silk embroidery but not 100% sure. There is some sort of Japanese writing/figure in the top right corner. Dimensions of frame (18 in. wide x 21 in. tall). Dimensions of art (13 in. wide x 13 in. tall)
My late father traveled a good deal in Japan during the early 1980's. Likely a gift or purchase.
Hi again Scott,
Thank you for your appraisal inquiries with Mearto. The item presented appears to be a silk embroidery panel depicting a mid-century style floral still life. Unfortunately, we are unable to read the potential signature. The panel appears to be more of a decorative object rather than an artwork. The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of comparable objects in similar dimensions. The estimate is contingent on a full condition report. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
