Description

This 19th century wooden sign with calligraphy was made in Japan during the Meiji period. This narrow wooden panel is lightly carved to create a frame and four calligraphic symbols. The upper section showcases remnants of a painted scene, probably a woman. The panel below features a large calligraphy enhanced by dark painted accents.

 

This tall 19th century Japanese Meiji period wooden sign with calligraphy would be an uncommon decorative item in most homes, perhaps hung on a wall or placed leaning on a chest of drawers or console table. However, thanks to its original narrow shape, it would also be a perfect decorative object for any small room such as a hallway.
