You can immediately tell this is a vintage Solo style Peranakan Chinese Javanese batik. The brown is gentle, and the swirls in the background with those light white pecks of dots is very telling. I think modern batik crafts people are still scratching their heads as to how to reproduce this effect. Part of it might just be the aging process itself. The diagonal and subdued design, along with the sogan brown come across very traditional at first. But upon closer inspection, you can see the small birds, made in the style more commonly found in Peranakan Chinese batik. I found them very whimsical! Although this was sold to me as fully "tulis", I have a feeling that this might be partially hand stamped. Hand stamped batik can be found in Java as early as the 1800s. CONDITION: A few pin holes and one tiny tear. NOTE: only the batik is for sale.
