Japanese Homefront Patriotic Fan-0010

This wooden Japanese Homefront Patriotic Fan measures approximately 11.5″ high X 5.” wide. The front displays a rather large vintage black and white image of the popular wartime actress, Takamine Mieko. She is surrounded by what appears to be a spray of carnations. Stenciled around her at the 12-3-6-9 o’clock positions are brightly painted blue, green and orange flowers. The reverse of the fan displays a grouping of red painted stars and the popular slogan Buun Chokyu or “May Your Military Fortunes Be Long Lasting”. This is the slogan most often seen placed upon Good Luck Flags or across 1000 Stitch Belts. A terrific and colorfully eye-catching Japanese homefront souvenir of World War Two.
