Koinobori banner  on wafuku.co.uk
  • A massive, cotton koinobori (carp windsock banner), with Kintaro (often translated as "Golden Boy",) who is a young hero from Japanese folklore
  • Touches of gold detail in the scales.
  • From the early to mid Showa era
  • Approximately 488cm (16 feet) long 
  • Some stains due to age but in very good condition, see photos below. A hard to find, vintage item
  • Would make a fabulous display item
  • Made in Japan


Condition: 
Very good some marks and no bamboo ring in mouth, which holds it open when hanging as a windsock banner outside but not wanted if hanging it as a display indoors. A metal coathanger could be used to make a new ring if wished.

Measurements:

Approximately 488cm (16 feet) long. Photo 2, below, shows a woman standing at the tail end and photo 3 shows her standing at the side of it, to give you a rough size reference
