This is a supreme Irotomesode
with nandina, kiku (chrysanthemum) and bamboo fence motifs, which are dyed.
Elaborate embroidery work is added in places, and they show graceful atmosphere.
Textile is exquisite silk and it's soft, and the lapel is hiro-eri(wide lapel).
There is an embroidered kamon around the nape.
This piece was made by Daihiko, one of the leading dyeing companies in Japan and the stamp is placed bottom of left collar part.
It has patinas on the left front panel as shown on the figure, and yellowish patina-like flaws are seen on the back bottom. (E,H)
There are stains partly such as the right lapel, and it has smudges on creases. (B,D)
Please see more photos and a figure for other flaws.
This item can't be worn at formal occasions regrettably.
However, we would like you to enjoy this beautiful embroidery work.
