Japan, mid-20th century or older

30” long x 14” (selvedge to selvedge)

Hand-Painted on silk “chirimen” (textured silk crepe)

Good condition except for one small hole and notch in the left selvedge.

 

This fabric (called “yuzen”) was hand-painted with textile dyes by means of a complicated process. This piece was originally part of a woman’s kimono. It shows two peacocks among lilies, carnations, lily-of-the-valley, spider mums, and other flowers.
