Boldly Colorful 1950s Handpainted Mexican Tourist Skirt with Musicians and Dancers


  • Product Description

      Vintage 1950s skirt is SO bold, and features a detailed and rich motif.  While I've seen many scenes of musicians, this is something special, featuring a musician on steel guitar, a harpist and classic guitarist. The painter cleverly snuck in the location that this would be a souvenir of - Veracruz - on the cap the harpist is wearing. The dancers are in motion - he wears a pink skirt, hat, and lime pants, while her top is grey and red, and her blue hair flowers match her skirt. There are clouds, seagulls and the silhouettes of ferns and monstera to fill in the rest. A striking skirt for the collector.

      This skirt is clean and ready to wear. There are some spots - notably, a coffee colored spot under the male dancer's chin at the back, but all other scattered little spots are much lighter. The right front above the steel player has a small water line. Like many painted skirts, there's also some stray spots of color, although nothing significant. This skirt is sturdy, and I find no other issues to note!
