Early to Meiji (1868-1900) | This silk antique uchikake features a rinzu (damask) base, with large fan and paulownia motifs. The plum blossom is symbolic of purity and nobility due to its enriched smell and elegant appearance. In the cold winter snow, the plum blossom grows new flowers from seemingly dead branches. The depiction of a five petal blossom represents new life at the end of the winter and is highly revered as an auspicious symbol in Japan.
