This is a graceful Houmongi
kimono with a design of autumn flowers such as 'Kiku'(chrysanthemum), 'Kikyo'(Chinese bellflower), 'Nadeshiko'(dianthus), 'Hagi'(Japanese bush clover) and 'Hagi'(bush clover) on the colorful ombre dyeing, which is dyed.
The colorful design emerges out against the pale purple background.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The collar is hiro-eri(unfolded collar).
It has basting stitches and seems just been cleaned.
It has some flaws such as slight discoloration on its base and on the seams. (A B)
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
Although not shown on the photo and the sheet, the 'hakkake' (lower part of lining) is a little prominently discolored.
Though it has slight aged feeling, it is in very good condition overall.
It's still wearable enough.
Please enjoy this enchanting elegant piece!
