Peranakan Chinese Indo-Dutch "Parang" Batik Tulis 1900s

This is a Banyumas style Batik Tulis with the very traditional "Parang" design done in the Indo-Dutch style, where the colours are cheerful but subdued. The older Banyumas style Batik Tulis was said to have the style more similar to the traditional Solo and Jogjakarta style, which this 'Parang' is. It also has the marking of a black stamp in the corner of this piece, which is a common practice around the early part of the 1900s, to mark the ownership of its producer, maker and designer. We therefore estimate this to be from around 1920s. CONDITION: The cloth is crisp and it has a waxy texture and look to its surface, which usually indicated that this has been taken care of really well for a really long time, despite the obvious marks of age and wear and tear. There are a few small worn points, and some patches of repairs as pictured. There is also a black mark which looks like ink. Please feel free to ask for additional pictures of signs of age.
