Date:
about 1970s
Description:
A chirimen (crepe-silk) kimono featuring charming childlike hand-painted depictions of homes and trees. The crepe is pronounced and thick on this relatively heavy winter kimono. A light, large stain on the inner upper lining (doura), with some areas of inconspicuous foxing on the outer. 49” from sleeve-end to sleeve-end x 59” height. This kimono is a one-of in terms of aesthetics: it was likely created in a specialized artist workshop creating works-of-art for wealthy clients.
