40's Japanese Furisode Orange Kimono
Antique 1940's Japanese furisode orange kimono robe. Extravagant, richly decorated kimono in shades of orange and red embroidered with gold metallic threads and detailed with applied gold paste (kindei-gaki). Extremely detailed and gorgeous floral designs. Vintage Japanese ceremonial kimono most likely from the 1940’s based on my research. The bottom hem and collar appear to be hand-stitched, the other panels may have been machine sewn together. Believe the fabric is rayon.
- No vintage size label, One Size Fits Most.
In excellent condition for its age – outside is in great shape! Inside lining there is a tiny spot on inside-front-left and a little bit of discoloration on inside bottom of lining. (see photos)
