Excellent for the age and colour, there are a few tiny age spots, right back sleeve seam and left back at the shoulder, these can just be seen on the photos. There is a faint mark, left lower collar, see photos and a few other tiny faint marks, these are hardly noticable and would not show on the photos.
This is a lovely uchikake from the Mid Showa Era. It is made from white rinzu silk with chrysanthemum/takewaku design. The dramatic, embroidered design is of flying cranes. The inner lining is vermillion smooth silk and the hem is heavily padded. Wonderful to wear, display or collect !
