This beautiful piece of Oriental silk embroidered cloth is like a piece of art.The life portrayal is done in mirror image with very vibrant colors. Bordered in a thin black edging and a second wider border piece of celadon green brocade, this red silk embroidered material shows a scene of life with the tree of life. The red silk area depicts kimono dressed people busy gathering at tables near a pagoda or in service to others carrying jugs. Butterflies, peacock type birds and flowers are embroidered as well. This piece has very tight embroidery and is in good shape with no stains. The backing is a silk lining. I have seen these type of pieces framed under glass as a piece of art. The piece is 12 inches wide and 25 ½ inches long. This cloth is absolutely exquisite! It is in good shape with no stains. Display it anywhere for a beautiful presentation.
