This is a beautiful Irotomesode
with a design of iris, 'uguisu' (Japanese bush warbler), 'ume'(Japanese plum) and 'peony' (botan) on 'rimpa'(one of the Japanese traditional painting technique)-style folding screen, which is dyed.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The lapel is hiro-eri(unfolded).
Red color 'Kasane eri' (layered collar) is added. It's polyester.
It has a dye kamon.
It has stains, which change its shading by degree of light, as figure shown. (B)
There are frays and discoloration, but they are hardly prominent. (A and D)
Also, slight discoloration can be seen on the lining.
Please check detail photos.
Patterned part of left front panel becomes thin partly, but it's not very serious damage for wearing. (It's not mentioned on the sheet and picture.)
However, if these small flaws mentioned do not bother you, it still may be worn at formal occasions.
Please enjoy its graceful classical design!
*Dyestuffs of patterned parts are sticky a little bit.
