A favorite motif seen in Japanese decorative arts, this graceful butterfly on our charming correspondence cards is adapted from the interior design of a tray from a late nineteenth-century Japanese lacquer box that once held poem cards and other stationery items. The unknown artist rendered a striking design of exquisite butterflies in maki-e lacquer. The range of colors achieved in this example is characteristic of the revival of maki- e technique sponsored by the Meiji government, which was spurred by the demand for Japanese lacquer in Europe and the United States as a result of the international expositions in Paris (1867), Vienna (1873), and Philadelphia (1876).
25 gold-embossed white correspondence cards and 25 white envelopes per box. 6 1/4'' x 4 7/8''.
