Dalmatic with self apparels. A very lush, repeating central floral grouping with various semi-naturalistic leaves and blossoms flanked by vertical branches of semi- “bizarre” floral motives. Metallic tape all around the edges and defining the apparels. Polychrome silk and metallic yarns on cream-colored satin-silk ground. Good condition; midly worn.
