Not on view

An example of traditional costume that was still being produced in the 20th century, this overskirt displays brilliant color and bold design. The embroidery nearly covers the surface of the skirt and combines both stylistic and naturalistic elements in the depiction of realistic irises and oversized potted flowers with their bold, definitive urns.
