Gift of Mrs. Gustave Brenner

Made in the Netherlands for export to Indonesia. A factory made imitation batik; they used mastic instead of wax and applied the pattern with rollers. Dutch factories also exported to Africa. There is a lot of crackling, which reflects the Dutch taste. This is a partial piece.--Itie van Hout 7/2004
