CLEANING JAPANESE SILK WWII BANNERS


Recommended Posts

I've acquired some gorgeous large 72+ inches long Japanese "Going to War" banners, and am always worried about moths and so want to clean them.

 

Some of the kanji on the banners are hand-painted, so I cannot hand wash, and dubious about local (even top-notch) local ecological cleaners.

 

I really don't want to frame them, but maybe the best solution....

 

Ideas?

I would recommend not cleaning them. They look good "as is", and it's an unnecessary risk.

Always interested in the 166th Infantry, 42nd Division, A.E.F.

Quality WW1 studio portraits and real photo postcards of Distinguished Service Cross recipients; showing steel helmets; or other interesting content.
