Fabric Description:  Lightweight meisen silk, slightly translucent,  is estimated from the 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, but this one is pinstriped and with parallel bands running vertically; fabric slightly stiff and slight sheen; the background is burgundy with hint of rust color); pinstripes are light-gray to silver, and the bands are silver and dark aqua-blue; This meisen does not have the typical fuzziness of most meisen we see from this period;  patterns same on both sides; please see close-ups
