This is a Houmongi
Kimono with a design of flying crane, nandina and 'kiku'(chrysanthemum) on 'tanzaku'(strip of paper), which is dyed.
Colorful ombre dyed on the pale gray base color looks fantastic.
Textile is exquisite silk with woven hail pattern and has soft touch.
The collar is hiro-eri(unfolded).
*The background color may look uneven in the photos but actual color is one tone just as HTML color.
Basting stitches remain and it seems to be just after cleaning.
Yellowish stains on left front panel are not so bothering with the base color. (B)
Background is slightly discolored overall.
Also, extremely slight discoloration can be seen on the lining.
Please check detail photos.
It has a couple of flaws, but they are not disturbing for wearing.
Please enjoy its graceful classical design!
