This is a beautiful Japanese wedding gown (uchikake). Featured on brownish orange (when you looked at it where the gold does not take over, the basic color looks more like brownish red) silk are flocks of white cranes and stylized water in roundels of gold. The tone of the gold is rich but soft. The design is unique, elegant, artistic and well executed with excellent workmanship. The condition is almost new. The color is ligher than shown in the photos but it can change to soft to strong depending on the light. The liner is a soft silk in metallic silver. This gown is perfectly wearable for a wedding and will also make a striking wall decoration piece. We chose this gown when we made a post card years ago. We keep all of the gowns in a box wrapped in the acid free paper. Measurements: 50 inches w x 72 inches long. Sleeve length: 42"
