The Jim Thompson Silk Company is the manufacturer of the finest Thai fabrics. In 2010 it began its collaboration with the Museo del Prado, for which it designed an exclusive collection of products inspired by the works of the Museum. Jim Thompson has taken tradition and reinvented the elegance of Thai fabrics, particularly natural fibres, in a creative model that it applies to items such as this one.

Silk. 54 x 54 cm. Manufactured by Jim Thompson Silk Company.
In her Table with a Cloth, Salt Cellar, gilt Tazza, Pie, Jug, Porcelain Dish with Olives, and Roast Fowl (ca. 1611), Clara Peeters used a number of earthenware pieces to give the still life a cosmopolitan appearance. This is the case of the German-made jug whose decorative pattern is reproduced in this exquisite silk handkerchief. Dry clean only.
