CREPED SILK - CHIRIMEN. - [Dai-i Go?] Sample book of Chirimen - Japanese creped silk.

n.p. [1880s?] 14x21cm heavy embossed wrapper with manuscript title label; 59 mounted fabric samples on 13 heavy double folded leaves; 44 are 7x5cm mounted in pairs, the rest are 4x5cm. Proper signs of use, a pleasing copy. ¶ A vibrant Kyoto kimono draper's sample book of high quality chirimen - creped silk - dyed in small patterns with synthetic dyes. A fair bit of trouble has been taken - the samples are mounted with black borders and all are neatly numbered suggesting this, while a working book, was to be shown to customers. Many samples are marked with a stamped circle beside them - maybe in or out of stock? Maybe a pricing code?
