Item Details
Taisho period (1912-1926)
A superb rinzu (damask) kinsha (fine crepe) silk Irotomesode featuring refined yuzen-painted Heian era motifs, with embroidery highlights. Very good condition, with minor imperfections. 48” from sleeve-end to sleeve-end x 61” height. This semi-formal garment has been painted with the following motifs: noh masks, auspicious pines, folded fan, noh flute, tsuzumi drum, and a Heian male aristocrat hat. Together, these motifs adore and reflect the nobility and sophistication of the Heian ‘golden-age” of a thousand years ago.
