This is a very unique Kurotomesode
with impressive dyed phoenix.
It is surely auspicious design but so unique! The partial embroideries are done by metallic gold threads and they make this kimono exceptilnally unique.
Textile is silk and there is silk hiyoku, extra lining added.
It has 5 dye kamons.
Due to the old age, the kimono is discolored and has some patina- the patina at the light color part of the patterns are quite prominent. The lining has discoloration also.
The gold embroideries are missing partially and some part is falling off.
Please check detail photos.
Because of the condition, the kimono is not wearable at formal occasion.
The design is so unique and we hope you can enjoy displaying this impressive flying Houou kimono.
