This is a lovely haori in heavyweight silk with all over urushi design. The design is typical of the Art Deco period. There is a central Mon at the neck, the Hanabishi (Flowery Diamond) Mon and both silk himo ties are present, a pair but very Japanese, different colours. Upper lining is the same fabric as the outer but the sleeves are lined in smooth silk with geometric Art Deco design. Wonderful to collect, wear or display!
