Good, whilst there are no holes, the purple colour is discoloured overall with some stains in places, see photos, more under C3003 heading, but this is still an amazing design and represents the Taisho Era very well !
This is a very rare, girl's kimono, in habutae silk with dramatic, stylised design of weeping willow and ivy draping over a pond with koi carp swimming. I have never seen a girl's kimono quite like this one ! There are 5 Mon present, the Mokko or Melon Mon. The kimono is unlined and is for summer wear. Collector's Item !
