This is a really lovely item, a dounuki (under garment) from the Taisho Era. The design is handpainted on cream raw silk, it is also signed by the artist. The lower part of the dounuki, collar and sleeve are woven silk. The inner lower lining is silk and the upper is cream raw silk. Wonderful collector's item!
