This is a lovely rare set, consisting of an irotomesode and juban. The tomesode is red, soft silk crepe with hand yuzen hem design of phoenix. The design continues inside the lower hem. There are 5 circles but no Mon has been added, this suggests the set has not been worn although there are light marks on the collar. The hem is lightly padded and the upper lining is red, raw silk. The juban is red silk with all over crane design. The collar is cream cotton fabric and the juban lining is cream, raw silk. Wonderful collector's item !
