Excellent for such and old piece, there are light stains on the front of the kimono but these do not detract from a superb piece.
This is a very rare item ! a girl's rinzu silk kimono from the late Edo Era, around 1850-1870. There are 5 large Mon present, which is typical of the period, the Mon is the KiKu (Chrysanthemum) Mon. The design at the hem is handpainted and has highlights of fine embroidery. It depicts a Buddhist festival as celebrated by the upper classes of the Heian Era and the design continues inside the lower hem. The upper and sleeve linings are orange silk naturally dyed with saffron, again typical of the period. The hem is lightly padded. Wonderful collector's piece !
