 SOLD. Thank you! 
This is a beautiful dark blue Japanese Uchikake (wedding gown) made in Nishijin, Kyoto. The label states the name of Nishijin and the use of pure gold. The gown is woven with fans and Gosho (palace) flower carts which is one of the favorite motifs used for Japanese wedding gowns. They are remainders of the Heian period (794-1192) which was the last graceful era of the aristocrats. The gown is meticulously hand sewn to perfection as most Japanese kimonos are. The gold picks up and shines with faint light and when it does, it brings out the whole design from the dark blue (close to royal blue) backround. It is a truly beautiful gown. The condition is almost new. The measurements: 52 1/2" W x 73" L
