Well

Well crib motif on a check background

$ 60.00
This 井 is the character for well and is a common Japanese design motif. It's used a lot in kasuri (ikat) weaving) and I can imagine this katazome (stencil dyed) design was used to dye indigo cotton with a similar effect. The check design is damaged in one spot. 24cm x 41cm. Late 19th - early 20th century.
