Very Good, snow area is slightly discoloured and there are a few small marks, see photographs. There are light smudges around the hem. Kimono of this colour tend to have some bleeding from the red lining, so there are a few marks and slight fading along back seam and shoulders of the main colour.
This is a lovely irotomesode in purplish blue, silk crepe. The rare design is hand yuzen and is of snow on plum blossom and camellias with mandarin ducks. There are highlights of fine embroidery and the design continues inside the lower hem. The hem is lightly padded and the upper inner lining is red, plain silk. There are 5 Paulownia Mon present. Wonderful to collect, wear or display !
