This is a lovely, colourful uchikake, in woven silk. The pattern is traditional, cranes, pines, blossom but cranes are larger than most uchikake of this type. The hem is heavily padded and the inner lining is thick red silk with unusually, a single Mon, Mokko (Melon) Mon centre at the neck. Wonderful to collect or display!
