Item Details
Location:
Japan
Date:
Mid-Showa era (1945-1960)
Description:
A relatively heavy crepe, lined kimono that was certainly created for wear during the colder winter season. The winter plant patterns reinforce this belief. Profuse surihaku (metallic leaf outlining). This is a heavy kimono, with a textured surface. In order to achieve the subtle shading of whites and off-white on the background, the artist has yuzen-dyed the entire background, a laborious task obviously done by a master who would go to any lenghts to achieve the desired effect. Excellent condition. 49” from sleeve-end to sleeve-end x 61” height.
Price:
$3500
