1950s Hand Painted Sequin Artegreen Mexican Skirt

A spectacular 1950s hand painted Mexican circle skirt by the brand Artegreen, which was one of the more prominent labels producing skirts in the 1950s. The skirt has the most amazing scene that circles the entire skirt. The hand painted design depict a festival of some sort in full swing - girls in full costumes dance their way around the skirt to the music of painted musicians. Palm trees sway in the background and villagers sits at a table nearby. The scenes are then highlighted with hand placed and sewn translucent gold sequins. A very unusual piece and highly collectible. Excellent condition
