This is a stage costume called Dateyoten used in Kabuki play in the Meiji Period(1868-1912).
It has a motif of vigorous dragon coming out from the ocean and its head showing between swirling clouds, which is thickly embroidered with Kinkoma embroidery technique.
Dragon's big gazing eyes, and from his opening month, a red long tongue is showing.
Tere is a fringe called Baren attached along the bottom.
It seems that Dateyoten is worn by a ogre or pirate role in a play.
The textile is rather thick cotton cut velvet.

Kinkoma embroidery overall is loosen and its seams and holds have come off due to its very old age. (E,F)
There are also many repairs of the parts. (F)
Fabric at the cuffs are deteriorated and yarns have become weak and thinned . (B.G)
It seems quite weary overall...

Also, its lining has many prominent flaws, such as large stains (I), discoloration. and repaired patches.
Dragon's eyeballs are missing.
It has some other flaws as shown on photos. Please see photos for details.

Though it has many severe flaws and become quite weak, it still is a very rate and value piece what tells old era it is from!!
