Stunning Chinese import blouse from the 1940s. This blouse features characters and symbols that I have had translated to a few different general ideas:

"Luckiness, forever, prosperity and good luck"

also interpreted as: 

"I don’t recognize the symbol, but I can tell that the sceptre-like print is “ruyi sceptre”, which is a curved decorative object often associates with good fortune in Chinese folklore. “Ruyi” literally means “as you wish” in Chinese, with a meaning of “all your wishes will come true”"

Condition:
nearly excellent vintage condition; so I washed this piece and in some lighting you can see that the darker blue is a little uneven throughout (color bleed) but it looks more iridescent because of the shine. It's honestly so hard to see or tell but worth mentioning. presents amazingly well. minor signs of wear - sold as found. *this piece did not air out as well as the others and does have some remaining smoke smell from the fire - smells like a campfire not cigarettes*
