Design for a printed silk featuring an all over design of butterlies in flight, in black, red, orange/gold, blue and green, on a neutral ground.

Design for a printed silk featuring an all over design of butterflies in flight, in black, red, orange/gold, blue and green, on a neutral ground. Flowers were not the only 'nature' subjects popular for fashionable dress designs. This design for fluttering butterflies was skillfully drawn by Winifred Mold in two colourways. The second version has pale yellow butterflies and a mid-grey ground.
