Fabric Description: Lightweight meisen silk, slightly translucent, is estimated from 1930s-1950's; Meisen is defined literally as 'common silk stuff'; and has grown in popularity in the last few years; Meisen from that period are usually larger bold patterns and bright colors. See close-ups.
Fabric Motif: Unusual Japanese design (Western influences, less typically traditional Japanese) motif of hexagonal shapes within a grid marked by irregular line; grid aligns diagonally; background is a cream color with lateral pixelated fine lines (evocative of traditional water/pond motif); The hexagons are background of dark moss-green with various oddly-shaped small figures within each; accents within those figures are in red and white; As is typical in Meisen, note the impressionistic fuzzy edges; patterns same on both sides; this particular meisen has no sheen and is a tad stiff.
