This is a vintage silk Japanese (outer robe) ceremonial wedding kimono, fully lined (in red silk), with hand painted tree scenes and embroidered brocade cranes.

I purchased it as a "work of art" collector's item from a wedding kimono boutique in Japan when I visited Tokyo in the early 1980's. It is handmade (one-of-a-kind), i.e. not made or mass produced by a brand named kimono designer store. That means it's unlikely you'll ever find another item like this one.

Most wedding kimono's at that time were (dark) red in color.

Very nice quality with stunning embroidery details. It comes with a wooden hanger (used to hang it up on a wall as a showpiece)

This uncommon collectible item is about 6.5 ft tall, about 4 ft wide and the thick (red border) hem is about 4 ft long (when opened up). The sleeves are about 42" (from shoulder to end of sleeves).

This item is sold as is.

Please email me with any questions or request more pictures. Pick up from my place in Birch Bay Village, Blaine, WA.

Or, you can ask for it to be shipped to you, e.g. via USPS, UPS, Fedex, etc. at your expense, preferably using your account for your preferred carrier(s) for packing and shipping.
