Off To War Banner-0016-"SOLD"
This bright and colorful silk Off-To-War Banner measures approximately 17.5″ wide X 62.0″ long. In very good condition, it s outer border is trimmed in orange, while the center aspect is an attractive cream-white color. The art across the top utilizes a Japanese battle flag as the background. Superimposed over it is a teal-blue colored squiggle across the top, followed by a large pink cherry blossom, surrounded by a wreath just below. Dropping down, there is a series of smaller red cherry blossoms, falling across the banner’s width. The bottom edge of this beautiful nobori is edged in an orange-blue silk tassel. The vertical rows of black kanji characters say, “Presented to: Arai Kinsuke. Presented by: Yokomizo Shuzojiro, Komuro Kenjiro and Yokomizo Sadajiro of Komiya Town, Owada.” (The same soldier also owned otwb-0017 as well as otwb-0021).
