Japanese textile samples. - A sample book of bright patterned silk, much of it creped.

n.p. [1920s or 30s]. 30x21cm flexible boards; about 800 or more swatches on both sides of 50 double folded leaves. Well used with pieces clipped from many swatches and the occasional missing piece. ¶ This is probably the most vivid and cheerful sample book I've had. I would have guessed these are artificial silks but random picks discovered only silk. Cheap and cheerful has been a marketing ploy for centuries but every now again there is reversal; these were not so cheap.
