This stunning meisen silk panel, measuring 11 inches by 48 inches (28 cm x 122 cm), was originally part of an haori. The vibrant scarlet background hosts a beautiful array of flowers in yellows, ivory, blues, greens, and reds. The focal point is a phoenix depicted with ivory head, breast, underwing, and some tail feathers. The wings feature sunflower yellow and peacock blues & greens, with sky blue tail feathers, highlighted by striking black accents and delicate grey details. Additionally, subtle metallic threads enrich the beak and some of the peacock-style tail feather 'eyes'. The piece is in very good condition, albeit with one small darkish teardrop mark, two tiny holes slightly larger than pin size, and a small 'butterfly' shape formed by tiny pinholes on the upper Phoenix's breast, suggesting something was once sewn there.
