1950s Painted Woven Bows Skirt

An exceptional 1950s skirt that is made of a woven fabric spotted through out with intricate little cut outs. The fabric is actually white base upon which the most detailed, extraordinary design has been painted or screened over in a black! Abstract stripes and waves flow towards the hem and circling the entire skirt is a painted ring of bows! I have had a similar dress in the past and was equally blown away! It almost looks like its made of paper upon first glance. I styled it over a deep red crinoline to that accounts for the color - it will show any color you put under it! The waist is finished with a silk check. It's a rare little gem indeed! A very unusual piece!
