A rinzu (figured) silk woman’s jacket featuring tatewaku and spider chrysanthemum motifs. Gold and silver thread spider-chrysanthemums are superimposed on larger figured-silk ones. 50” from sleeve-end to sleeve-end x 33” height. This jacket was worn seasonally: tatewaku (rising steam) is a spring motif, symbolizing the steam rising from plants at the first spring heat. The aesthetic displayed is both rare and timeless.
