This is a rare stage costume from mid Showa period(Showa:1926-1989) or earlier.
We are not sure how and when it was used.
I might be for Joruri dolls or kyogen play(for child actress).
Joruri is Japanese traditional puppet play - please check our article about joruri in this page
This piece is made of shusu, and decorated luxuriously with kinkoma embroidery and patchwork.
It has some flaws as photos show, but as a whole it is in very good condition.
