Very Good for the age and colour. There is a blank piece of fabric at the bottom, front of left sleeve, see photo. There are a few faint marks, see photos, hardly noticable and some very light foldline smudges.
This is a lovely interesting item from the Taisho Era, a juban (under kimono) made from woven silk, wedding obi fabric with design of cranes/clouds/ chrysanthemums. The colour is ivory with a black silk haneri under which is the cream cotton collar. The inner lining is cream raw silk. Interesting collector's item !
