Fabric Description: Lightweight meisen silk, slightly translucent, is estimated from 1930s-1950s; 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) seems Abstract motif of mountain shapes(?) on background is a cream color, though the fabric is replete with other colors (gray, dark gray, pink, moss-green, dark red, and blacks); 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.
Colors: Reminder that colors and contrast differ on different devices, so please refer to our text color descriptions.
