This is a very vintage - almost antique - indigo cotton three-panel noren. The crane design is typical of a wedding motif and the excellent condition (you can still smell a touch of the indigo dye) suggests it may have been used only one time. See video below on Japanese indigo.

The age is impossible to discern, especially since these were only used once. Seems like new but was purchased at a temple market in Kyoto from a dealer who specializes in antique indigo.

These noren are most common in Ishikawa Prefecture, and in fact there is a museum in Nanao City dedicated to them.

This noren has three cranes and a single large ivy crest at the top. It's a fairly rare find and would be a welcomed addition to any collector of indigo or vintage textiles.

See video below on beautiful examples of noren in Japan.
