For the age, over 200 years old, the condition is very good, the outer, in the grey area has smudges and marks consistent with it's great age. The collar also has marks, see photos. The bottom hem red silk has tears and a few holes, see photos but the rest of the inner lining is in very good condition. A wonderful and charming piece of history and definitely a collector's item!
This is a lovely wedding kimono, in shusu silk with bokashi colours. There are 5 Mon present, the Omodaka (Water Plantain) Mon, used in the Edo period by Toyotomi Hidesugu and the Kinoshita and Fukushima families. The design around the hem is handpainted Japanese scenery with pines and flying chidori. It is highlighted with tiny embroidery stitches. The bottom of the kimono is padded and the inner lining is plain red silk, naturally dyed with saffron. Wonderful collector's piece!
