Beautiful silk Japanese wedding gown in excellent condition. The design on this gown shows fans painted (woven in this case) with clouds and plum blossoms floating on a golden river. The background color shifts back and forth gradually between dark blue and white pearl color. It seems that everything is floating endlessly, leading us back to the ancient town of Heian-kyo (old Kyoto) where the ladies in layered kimono hid themselves behind fans and screens, and the lovers spoke by exchanging waka poems.
The gold is genuine - gold leaf wrapped around threads. High quality gown from Nishijin, Kyoto. Dimensions: 51" wide (sleeve to sleeve) x 68" in length.
