Rose-Purple-Gold Chirimen Crepe Vintage Kimono Silk 6.5" x 14" #4122
Many reds and purples, plus black and hand-painted gold highlights, in this vintage chirimen crepe. The lush flowers, mostly chrysanthemums and peonies, are everywhere; and there are gold-decorated fans, leaves, bridges and forests. Supple, textured, drapey chirimen crepe with a pebbly surface, dry hand, and no shine at all. The back is mostly dark red and black; the print comes through just a bit. Vintage silk in excellent condition from its former life as a kimono. Japan.
These are small pieces, and yes there really are 20 of them.
