Very Good for the age, the black is lightly discoloured and there are a few light marks on the outer. There is a paper label mark (see photo) on the inner, lower, right lining.
This is a lovely boy's miyamairi in habutae silk. The design is handpainted with wonderful detail and depicts the famous 'Battle of Ichi no Tani' between the Miyamoto and Taira clans. There are a few embroidered highlights but some are missing. There are 5 Mon present, the Tachibana (Orange Blossom) Mon. The ties are attached to the kimono and have finely embroidered noshi decoration. The inner upper lining is cream raw silk. Wonderful to display and collect !
