This is a piece of Banyumas style Batik Tulis that is highly saught after for its "Beras Wutah" or "Spilled Rice" background and its intense dark blue dye. Because of the intensive of the dark blue, it is estimated to originate from the pre-WW2 period. The darker the blue, the more expensive the Batik. Newer Banyumas style batik tulis usually has cream background with dark brown and red dye. I was told the bird is a certain kind of species where they sort of "folded" their neck, in case you are wondering why the birds look a little odd! :) REPORTED CONDITION: GOOD.
