A Very Layered Boro Fragment #1: Zokin Sized
late nineteenth, early twentieth century
10" x 12 3/4", 25.5 cm x 32.5 cm
This very attractive little boro fragment is stitched from six separate layers of cotton cloth; it was purchased with a group of zokin and it was not until recently that it was discovered that no, this is not a zokin, this is simply a fragment from a larger, very densely layered, boro piece.
Only one of its four edges are finished; the remaining three are cut. Still, this fragment shows very good pieces of old cloth and is interesting from both sides.
Very goodlooking--and with age.
