Mandarin Orange Floral, Vintage Kimono Silk 6.5" x 80" #4473
Endless foliage; leaves in many types and colors, and chrysanthemum blossoms in purple, red-orange and white, on rich, dark, glowing Mandarin Orange. The base jacquard shows up mostly in the orange, and is flecks of shine clustered closely together. Everything is outlined in silvery white. We think it's a high end print that mimics bingata in the blending of colors in the leaves and flowers. Liquid drape, supple, flowy, lightweight, soft pure silk in perfect condition. It's a very fine crepe and may be a Tango Chirimen. These pieces had a former life as parts of a kimono. Japan.
