A nobori is a Japanese banner. It is a long, narrow flag, attached to a pole with a cross-rod to hold the fabric straight out and prevent it from furling around the rod. In this way, the field is always visible and identifiable. Nobori are seen on streets throughout Japan and are used primarily for advertising purposes.

Ichiro Suzuki was a spokesman for the Nissan Co. from 1995-1999. During that time, several different Ichiro nobori were used to promote NIssan cars. This nobori answers the question posed on the banner of the previous lot. The text, "airbags absolutely" is seen, along with text stating that the Nissan is an "ichiro recommended car".

Size: 23 1/2" x 70"

Condition: Unused or barely used, but has been folded and has a minor stain at one fold. We think that the nobori were originally delivered to the advertising site folded.
