A Short Length of Indigo Dyed Katazome Cotton: Folding Fans and Chrysanthemums
mid twentieth century
35 1/2" x 13", 92.5 cm x 33 cm
This length of stencil resist dyed cotton shows a cheerful design of double chrysanthemums and folding fans, two very well-used Japanese design motifs.
There are two columns of designs, each running in a different direction. The lyrically placed ties on the folding fans add to the lighthearted mood of this panel which was taken from a futon cover.
In used condition, but with bright contrast between the undyed cotton and the hand dyed indigo.
