Remarques & avis / Review — A fine Japanese Iroha Karuta game (Edo version), very probably from the 1950s-60s (postwar Showa feel & design), in 2 large plates (one with the illustrations, the other with the proverbs), meant to be cut into cards, here untouched (rare). Superb retro illustration, with children, sakura et dango, manekineko, mochi, pachinko, monkey, fox, oni & more! Would look fine under a frame.

Un beau jeu japonais Iroha Karuta (version Edo), très probablement des années 1950-60 (design & feeling Showa), en 2 larges planches (une avec les illustrations, l'autre avec les proverbes), faites pour être découpées en cartes, ici telles que (rare). Superbe illustration rétro, avec enfants, sakura et dango, manekineko, mochi, pachinko, singe, renard, oni &c. ! Serait à sa place sous cadre.
