1950s Painted Mexican Set

Very unusual hand made and hand painted Mexican set that would have been made for the tourist market. All hand painted using metallic tinted paints and then hand applied with sequins in various metallic colors to pick up the painted colors used. Scenes depict sombrero bedecked men dancing with stunning girls in full pageantry. The skirt is short and quite full and it is important to note that it does not appear to have been shortened but that this is its original intended length! The top is a wild explosion of painted design and sequins. All on a cotton velvet. Very good condition and a really exceptional example of this genre. The word Jarana is written within one of the paintings on the skirt.
