Chrysanthemums & Plum Blossoms on Deep Indigo Kimono Silk. 7" x 57", #4186
The base jacquard is woven to seem like more tiny leaves fallen in the water surrounding the ponds of chrysanthemums and plum blossoms. The background is rich dark indigo, and the other tones are yellow with a hint of orange, so not bright yellow. Red-orange and purple are also slightly muted, not bright. The small white maple leaves are bright white, and some of the leaves are almost-shiny golden taupe. The large flowers are around 2" across. Supple, smooth, perfect condition silk from a former life as an elegant, dressy kimono. Japan.
