Classic Kuro Tomesode kimono in black silk crepe with hand painted scene in lower section.
This antique kimono boasts the finest craftsmanship and a hand painted mountain scene in white with gold highlights. This decorative element is a work of art in itself.
As a formal kimono this garment shows a family crest in five locations (center back top, back of sleeves and front of sleeves). The lining is made of 3 colors of gorgeous Japanese silk: ivory, ecru and caramel gold as well as white. It is in excellent condition on the outside. The family crests and scenic decoration are perfectly intact. The lining has a few small holes and light stains, but they do not show on the outside or detract from the wearability of this garment. Otherwise the fabric is in very good condition and could be re-purposed into clothing, accessories or fine art pieces.
This kimono can be displayed on a balcony (as shown) or wall. Place it on a bamboo pole or dowel rod. The mountain scene makes it a work of art.
As wearable art, it can be worn as a formal coat or as a long dress, belted with a sash, obi, fabric or leather belt in color, white or silver to highlight the painted scene. The on-size-fits-all length typical of Japanese kimono can be shortened by folding the waist up and belting it with a sash, cumberbund, fabric or leather best or cincher.
If you are into cosplay, anime or fantasy costume, this is perfect. Truly one of a kind in design.
Wearable, displayable and collectible. Raw materials for re-purposing. Antique 1910 (art deco).
Excellent condition, some wear in lining. 25 in. wide (arm hole to arm hole; across the hips seam to seam) 58 in. long (top of back neckline to hem) 14 in. wide (each front panel)
