A white tiger from the mid-1950s, depicted from an oblique upper angle, which is rare among tiger designs.
While making full use of needle feet, the embroidery outlines are emphasized by showing the ground color of the fabric in part of the striped pattern, making it more three-dimensional.
The large "JAPAN" written in large letters is a powerful design.
The reversible side features an eagle flying among cherry blossoms.
The embroidery of the eagle and dragon on the chest is also delicately and precisely rendered, showing the attention to detail of the craftsmen of the time.

VELVETEEN SOUVENIR JACKET
Many early Souvenir jackets were made of reversible acetate fabric, but a variation from that time exists in the form of a model made of a fluffy, bettin fabric.The acetate on the reversible side was quilted to hold down the cotton.
