The elusive arrays of fruit in the 3 NEGERI style batik tulis can be found in this Tjoa Tjoen Tiang piece (Read: Choa Choon Tyang). This is not her finest work, and the asking price reflects this. Madam Tjoa, who later signed pieces made under her direction with her initials "ToToT", with fat dots, which evolved to "TOTOT" in later days, works around the 1930s, being the second generation of the founding Tjoa generation (the Tjoa Gioks in the early 1900s). I personally think that the 1930s is the height of the Tjoa's style and batik tulis crafts, which not suprisingly coincided with the height of the Peranakan Chinese culture in South East Asia, which experienced significant decline after the onset of WWII. The 3 states style from Solo has its blues, reds and browns, dipped in 3 different cities, or batik "states" in those days, in the Java region: Pekalongan, Lasem and Solo respectively. CONDITION: there is a vertical 30 cm stitch and patch repair of a rip at the bottom of the piece. The white stickers help us to see where the rip is. There is one pin hole, this is rather common with cloths this old. The asking price here also takes this into consideration.
