This is a very rare, high quality piece, a rinzu silk haori from the Taisho Era. The design is hand yuzen with hand painted highlights. There are 3 Paulownia Mon on the back of the haori, one centre neck and one at the top of both sleeves. Both silk himo ties are present and the upper lining is plain black silk. The haori has been altered at some time in it's life hence the bigger size. High Class Collector's item!
