The printed silk is "Mikado" pattern (Ref. No. 413), designed by Ugo Zovetti between 1910 and 1912 - the short period during which he worked for the Wiener Werkstätte.
The present blouse bears close similarities to the work of Eduard Wimmer. It is comparable also to some of Peche's fashion designs of this period, but is considered more likely to be the creation of Eduard Wimmer.
