Fine Japanese Kimono

PRE WW II MONTSUKI WITH FREE HAND YUZEN IMPERIAL CARTS, EMBROIDERED CHRYSANTHEMUMS AND MON

The silk for this formal kimono is lightweight. The hem is ornately painted in a motif of Imperial Carts, flowers and game shells. The design is augmented by embroidery. The montsuki is recognized by the mirror image on the skirt. The design is modified and presented on the under skirt as well. This formal black silk kimono was a traditional wedding gown. Typically the sleeves were shortened after the wedding. The shorter sleeve made the kimono a tomesode. However this beauty has the original length sleeve. The gown has five family crests in the paulownia motif. The montsuki is fully lined in scarlet silk and has a slightly padded hem. The kimono is in good condition. 49 x 58
