Item Details and Description
Fabric Type: Light-medium weight soft-white background with wide ranges of colors used in the floral and other background designs; design is on one side; colors of designs include various shades of burgundy-red, dark lavender and purples, colonial blues, ligh-aqua-blue,yellow mustard, pinks and greens (see close-ups).
Motifs: Fields of flowers (chrysanthemums?) rendered in an atypical(non-traditional) way with dominant motif being bamboo leaves (larger than usual); there are also interesting uses of small curlicue shapes, shibori-dot field in yellow(this also is rare) as well as some geometric design fields; Note also a large cursive line down the length (again, this is subtle and not evident at casual glance.) This is one of the most distinct motifs of the early post-war period(1945-1955) we've seen in some time.
