JAPAN
SILK BIB,
Japan
Taisho (circa 1920), diameter cm 30.

A delicious piece of valuable ‘chirimen’ (crepe) silks, with colourful fan shape pattern made of patchwork.

A feast for the eyes of happy parents during the roaring 20s in Japan! Apart from slight patinas in the white parts, the condition is just great. Hard to imagine it was ever used as bib! In any case a great statement of design and a lovely object.

SILK BIB *

Japan

Taisho (circa 1920), diameter cm 30.


What a lovely thing is this! Pieces of valuable ‘chirimen’ (crepe) silks are arranged in a way that the baby head will pop out as the centre of a daisy-like flower (possibly a chrysanthemum in the original intention).

Apart from slight staining (more evident in images than in flesh) the condition is just great.

ABOUT UROBORO

Is dedicated to Nunzio, my only and best brother I could have had. He was also a friend of mine, and of great help in my life, making me simple hard decisions.
What you find here is his personal collection. Unfortunately, my home is not large enough to contain all, so if you are interested in purchasing any article, please contact me. Some of these articles are already collected by some friends of mine and are no more available. These pieces are marked with a red asterisk.
