Butterfly silk scarf
The butterfly design on this black silk scarf is based on the decoration of an interior tray from a late nineteenth-century black lacquer box that once held long rectangular poem cards and other stationery items.
The unknown artist rendered a striking design of large butterflies hovering over grasses tangled with wild chrysanthemum and tufted maiden flower in maki-e lacquer.
