Description

A Japanese antique shop sign from the 19th century, with hand-painted décor presenting a woman's profile and calligraphy. Created in Japan during the 19th century, this wooden shop sign features a thin vertical silhouette accented with a hand-painted décor. Adorning the upper section, a woman's face, seen in profile, stands out on large flower with green leaves behind. The woman's black hair is falling down on each side of her neck which is draped with a double strand pearl necklace. The rest of the sign showcases calligraphy with large characters in the center and smaller ones on the surround.


The ensemble boasts a nicely weathered appearance revealing its age and life spent outdoors. With its rustic presence and interesting proportions, this antique Japanese shop sign from the 19th century will make for a great decorative accentuation to any home, particularly hung in an entryway!.
