and flowers on fan pattern, which is woven.
Gold foil threads woven in the pattern are gorgeously shining.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
Its length is rather short. 390cm(12'7")
Discoloration due to its age can be seen overall.
It has some other flaws such as folding lines and tiny snags.

Though it has some flaws by ages, please enjoy its retro and gorgeous design of vintage!
