This impressive pair of Japanese silk embroidered tigers dates to the Meiji period, at around 1900.

Tigers were very popular in Japanese art as a symbol of strength and courage even though they are not native to Japan.

The embroidery is worked in silk on a satin silk ground. The clever and very skilled use of long stitch and short stitch produces the subtle variation in colour and a sense of three-dimensional representation of the subject matter.

The embroidery is framed in a contemporary frame and protected by UV glass.
