Description

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).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beautiful gold embossing, but stock too thin I’m in the stationery business. I love the foils and embossed butterflies but the paper is way too thin. However they are for my daughters who are learning… They will suffice. Can we just heavy up the stock a bit? I am a giant MET fan…

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simply Elegant The weight of the stock is just right allowing for a nice flow of the pen. The box is a beautiful green - suggested upgrade: a mix of white, green, and cream stock. I will continue to enjoy sending notes on these beautiful cards.
