This is an elegant Houmongi
Kimono with a design of castle, 'Shou-chiku-bai'( pine tree, bamboo and ume blossom) and 'Botan'(peony), which is dyed with pale colors.
Textile is exquisite silk and has soft touch.
The collar is hiro-eri(unfolded collar).
The actual background color is more reddish than the photos.
It has basting stitches and seems just been cleaned.
It has prominent patinas on the left chest and on the left front panel. (A/*indicated as stains)
The discoloration on the outside is not so bothering.
The lining is slightly discolored and has relatively prominent patinas.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
However, if these flaws do not bother you, it could be worn.
Please enjoy its attractive classical design!
