Nice Old Japanese Wall Hangings - These are a pair of wood plaques that have figures in relief that are done in a mother of pearl. Each section is separate and pieced together to make two oriental female figures. The heads appear to be made of a clay or other material than shell. The clothing is hand painted and the background is done in gold paint with the ornate edging done in gold and white. I am not sure how old these are. There is a note attached to the back of one reading "Bought 10/87 Bar Harbor Main Antique - 2 for $100". They are old, however and one has some scratching in the black paint at the top. Each has an attached decorative metal hanger.
