This is a set of vintage Uchikake, including 2 Kakeshita (furisode, which is worn under Uchikake) and a juban(undergarment).
Uchikake seems to be tailored before WWII.
Textile of them is exquisite silk and has very soft touch.

(1) Uchikake
It has auspicious pattern such as crane, 'Kame'(tortoise) and 'Shou-chiku-bai'( pine tree, bamboo and ume blossom), which is elaborately embroidered to the details.
It will be a special collection though we seldom meet such a gorgeous embroidery wok nowadays.

Foe example, Koma embroidery is added with silk and foiled threads shell of 'minogame'(old turtle with seaweed growing on its back) , an auspicious symbol as shown on the 11th & 12th photos.
On the seaweed, different colored threads are elaborately embroidered along the wavy lines.

Delicate embroidery work are shown to the feather of crane, eyes and outlines of eyes.

It has some flaws by ages such as slight discoloration overall.
The stains of about 3cm(1.18in) on both chest are a little noticeable.(E)
(They seem to be traces of white circles dyed out for a kamon (family crest). )
It has some other flaws such as stains (H) ans similar ones in places.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.

Though not indicated, it has slight frays allover the embroidery work with slight foil peeling and dullness.

The slight discoloration overall is not so noticeable.
Other flaws are tiny and slight, but a little bothering on the white patterned parts.
For the details, please refer to the photos and the sheet.
