The background of this meisen-look print is a jacquard with pairs of small peach and purple rectangles lined up geometrically in rows and columns, that change in the light. Large yellow and white poppies with orange, on tall stems with turquoise leaves. Quite thin and light, with some stiffness, it's almost delicate, not flowy, and probably quite old. We think either pure silk or a blend; it does hold a crease and has some sheen. It's a unique, electric-bright, joyous design, and both sides look identical. Perhaps it's an over-printed jacquard; see last photo with closeup detail. It may have been for kimono lining. There are sharp crosswise fold lines about every 29", so perhaps it was just recently rolled on to this tube. If the creases don't come out, you're welcome to a full refund and return, but they'll probably press out. Sold by the full yard and we'll cut yours in one piece from the vintage, excellent condition, unused bolt.  14" wide. Japan.
