    I bought this, then realised that it was reminiscent of something antique we had when I was little, which we referred to as 'the Bird and Tomato'. It was Chinese, I think. I could ask my sister if she has an image of that, but his is what I have just bought. Say if I need a more detailed image, please.
    I was told Japanese embroidered silk. Can anyone tell me what I have? What does the text say?
    Cheers.

    Interesting! Probably made very recently, judging by the vibrant colours. Thanks for that
