Item Details
Taisho era (1912-1926)
This large main (outer) furisode of a three-furisode kasane set (see 1628b & 1628c for the middle and inner of the set). An impressive garment, with it's use of a wide range of colors and motifs combined in a sophisticated and masterful manner. The motifs are rendered in yuzen-painting; sagara, satin-stitch and couching embroidery, and surihaku outlining. Of note is that some of the satin-stitch embroidery utilizes metallic thread - quite unusual. The bottom of this furisode has padding much like the uchikake. There are five mon (family crests). 51" from sleeve-end to sleeve-end x 67" height.
