Okito: Attention to Detail was a Bamberg Characteristic

[continued from previous page...]

Okito (Theo Bamberg), shared with his son, "Fu Manchu" (David Bamberg) pristine attention to detail, one of the traits which made these two gentlemen so successful in their performances.

 

The frontispiece of Okito's kimono, shown at left as it exists today, and below in a photo of Okito in his performance costume, shows this attention to detail which marked both of their legendary careers.

 

This emboridered frontispiece was one of the few precious souvenirs retained by David Bamberg in his personal collection after the death of his father.
