This is a fabulous antique fukusa from Meiji period(1868-1912).
It has embroidered motif from Chinese folk tale of "Bamboo shoot of the in the deep snow".
The story is about a boy who wanted to give bamboo shoot to his sick mother which is a favorite food of her.
However, the season was winter(bamboo shoot grow in spring). He couldn't give up. So, he went to look for it into snow covered bamboo grove. And he found it!
It is a story which tells us impossible thing happens if we strongly desire.
Don't you think it is a WONDERFUL story?

The elaborate embroidery work has three-dimensional glossy beauty.
Textile is exquisite glossy 'Shusu'(satin) silk.

Although not shown on the photo and figure, it has discoloration overall the outside by ages and seams in the middle of the wrong side.
A thread is cut off on the upper right on the outside.
