This is a lovely, unusual kurotomesode in black silk crepe. There are five Mon present, the Ichyo (Maidenhair Tree) Mon. The dramatic design of standing cranes at the hem has highlights of embroidery and continues inside the lower hem. The upper inner lining is red, raw silk. Wonderful to wear, display or collect !
