Item Details
Location:
Japan
Date:
Taisho era (1912-1926)
Description:
An unusual and marvellous silk kimono dating to the Taisho era. The silk is fine and hard, suggesting that it may be a shushi silk. There may be omeshi weave involved in the patterning of this garment: if so, it is as fine an omeshi as I have come across. Excellent condition. 51" from sleeve-end to sleeve-end x 64" height.
Price:
$3000
