Finest Quality Japanese Illustrated Noh Poem Album – 18th Century.

This superb album dates to the 18th Century. It contains six different images made up of a variety of techniques including wood and silver appliqués and work with real gold. Each image includes a Noh poem written in exceptionally fine calligraphy. The work is truly of museum quality and equals the work of some “national treasures”. Unfortunately this album has suffered fairly extensive worm damage. Dimensions: 39cm (15.25 inches) x 30.5cm (12 inches).

Provenance: From the collection of the late Brian Page (1938-2018), the well-known Oriental art and antiques dealer from Brighton.
