Good condition of color and conservation. Dimensions: Equivalent size 34 France. The taste for the Renaissance and Louis XIII style returns in force around 1890 and is declined in the decorative arts of this period, in particular in the furniture and fashion. This clothes of historicism inspiration, superimposes the styles Louis XIII and Louis XV. It denotes a pronounced taste for the overload of ornaments with rich effects. In addition, the print on chain establishes a direct link with the chiné of the eighteenth century. Invented by the Lyon manufacturers who dominated the silk market in the Enlightenment, it is an elaborate technique of dyeing the chain yarns before weaving, producing this so characteristic ikat fuzzy effect, and imitated the following centuries, especially in Asia.
