PRE WW II FORMAL BLACK CREPE HAORI WITH ABSTRACT LACQUERED DESIGN AND TSUTA MON

The black silk crepe for this formal jacket is medium weight. The abstract design suggests clouds and scrolls to us. The design is composed of curved and flowing lines with a counter point of circles and straight lines. The entire pattern is woven in metallic threads of red, silver, gold and green. The traditional haori is prefect host for the contemporary look of this abstract pattern. This jacket says sophisticated. It is lined in a colorful stenciled silk. Circlets of red, green and yellow dragons are beautifully rendered. The haori is in good condition. It has a single mon in the Tsuta or ivy motif. Gieshas are said to love this crest. The way ivy twines and grows thick around other plants was said to symbolize the way these women depended on their patrons and never left them. 50 x 31 sleeves 20
