Very Good, there is very slight discolouration of the black but it is not disturbing, there are a few small dye marks on the back of the kimono, see photos again these do not detract.
This is a lovely tomesode in black silk crepe with 5 Hanabashi Mon (Flowery Diamond) present. This Mon is associated with the Yanagisawa family. The pattern at the hem is dyed and is of large fans (ryozuma mirror image type), it continues inside the lower lining. The upper lining is red smooth silk. Wonderful to wear, collect or display!
