Flowers and Birds - Handpainted Obi Design (Zuan)

Regular price $90.00 $0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

Early - mid 20th century (c. 1930s?)  original design hand painted on paper.  32cm x 42.5cm  I think this design was  for obi fabric, but possibly a kimono.  This will have been stored most of its life in the makers'  archive and  the colours are still fresh and vibrant.  The contrasting coral and aqua give it a modern feel. The design has a mix of Japanese and western floral and bird  motifs, organised in a  variation of a traditional pine bark diamond  pattern.
