Pair of hanging scrolls of hawks

Price:  1.100,00

Striking pair of kakejiku 掛け軸 (hanging scrolls) with matching paintings of two taka 鷹 (hawks) on a perch with thin translucent grey silk drapes. Both bound to the poles using colourful decorative silk tethers.

Both sealed in red: ‘Tamura’ 田村 and ‘Chokuô’ 直翁. According to the seals by Tamura Chokuô 田村直翁 (active early 17th century). Due to the remounting and skill-full restorations it is difficult to determine if the paintings actually date from this period. We do dare to say they are at least made at the end of the Edo period (Late 18th-century-First half 19th century).

The multicoloured paintings is set on paper. The mounting is made of different types of silk, white brocade, green brocade and grey.

Height approx. 187 cm, Width 43.7 cm

.Considering their age they are in a very good restored condition with minimal traces of wear conform age, like minor horizontal creases. High quality restoration of the paper on multiple places. Mounting of later date, probably done at the same time as the restorations. Please look at the photos for a condition reference.

Including wooden tomobako 供箱 (storage box) to storage 2 scrolls with inscribed label.

When shipped we will add a certificate of authenticity.
