Vintage Mary Quant-style 1960s flowered top by Lonze.Please

Here is a really pretty, lovely silky top in pink, green, blue and white, with a pattern of flowers and leaves, claarly influenced by the designs of Mary Quant, and dating from the 1960s or 70s.
The flowers in the design do not simply sit on the background, but come out of patches of colour (I think this is called 'white (or whatever) out'. This gives the design a slightly dream-like quality; some of the flowers are almost ghosts of themselves. It's hard to describe - I hope the picture shows what I mean!
The top has short sleeves, a round neck with collar, and two bust darts. Otherwise, it's just a square shape. It's made from knitted polyester, which has a silky look and feel, very easy and comfortable to wear.
The label reads 'LONZE Diolen Frottee Made in Europe 44'. On the back are washing instructions and '100% polyester'.
Approximate measurements are: bust 39 inches (99 cms), length 22½ inches (57 cms). The top is in good vintage condition, with no marks, rips or tears so far as I can see.
