This striking collection of 8 vintage Japanese kites are simply spectacular. True works of art! Are there more colourful flying art anywhere in the world? We don't think so! Each kite is unique and features original Japanese graphics and images. You can use these vintage kites as unique posters for your office or living room.
These kites have a wonderful aesthetic that showcases Japanese traditional furniture at it's finest. We believe they are way too good to fly! Why not hang them as pictures in your hallway to create a statement for all your guests to enjoy from the offset.
The Japanese Kites are handcrafted from thin bamboo strips made into a cross-frame with a painted paper covering. This contrasts beautifully with the colourful designs and adds to the traditional design.
Looking at the images: there is a selection of angry looking legendary war heroes and traditional script graphic patterns. It would have been a great spectacle to see a flock of these kites flying in the wind! Other kites also feature beautiful Japanese graphics and symbols.
Unfortunately, some of the kites are damaged - the paper is torn in places and so can't be used for flying. Instead, why not consider as a wall art mounted in a frame? We will repair the torn kites with masking tape.
Vintage Japanese Kites size (average): W36-40cm x H50-60.
There are 9 individual Japanese kites in the collection...some in their original transparent sleeve.
If you love our new colourful kites, you will appreciate our Japanese antique furniture collection. From vintage storage boxes to a Japanese low dining table, we know you will find something to compliment the kites beautifully.
