Asian Silk Embroidery
I purchased these gorgeous silk embroidered pieces and had them framed while we were in Okinawa in the early '80's. The stores there were calling them "kimono sleeves" -- I never asked why. The two pieces on either side are vintage pieces with certificates of authenticity. I suppose that would make them more collectible or worth more if one were trying to sell them. Who knows ? I love them where they are in this arrangement on a wall in my bedroom.
