Item Details
Location:
Japan
Date:
1920s
Description:
A rinzu (figured, damask) silk woman’s light jacket featuring groups of flowers and plants. The main technique utilized was yuzen-painting, with some free-hand painting highlights. The single ‘mon’ (family crest) is of fine gold-metallic embroidery. Considering the high-quality rinzu silk, the fact that none of the motifs are duplicates, and that the yuzen-painting is very sophisticated (includes some color shading), as well the overall effect, it is obvious that this is a luxury jacket created for a wealthy and discriminating individual.
