This is a graceful Houmongi
kimono with auspicious 'minogame'(old turtle with seaweed growing on its back) design, which is dyed.
Its brilliant gold foil threads and the background color getting darker towards its bottom add extra elegance to it.
Textile is exquisite glossysilk and has soft touch.
It has a dyed kamon(family crest) on the nape.
There is a stamp of the designer's signature on the right front panel.
It has basting stitches and seems just been cleaned.
Although not shown on the photo and figure, it has 2 tiny foil peeling spots on the design of 'Okumi'(front panel below collar end) of the left front panel.
The discoloration on the back is slight and not noticeable.
