Antique Black Silk Japanese Wedding Kimono, embroidery
Price On Request

Beautiful Shusu (satin silk) Uchikake kimono from the Meiji period (1868 - 1912). All hand sewn with embroidery and gold couching work - overlaying of threads (real gold wrapped around thread) rather than going in and out of the base fabric.

The dimensions are 50 inches between from tip to tip of the sleeves, 60 inches long and 29 and half for the sleeve length. All the edges and openings are generously stuffed with raw silk. The photos shown here do not capture the true quality of this gown. The condition is new with the basting stitches still intact after all these years. This is a truly beautiful old gown in new condition. One 1/16" hole in the middle of sleeve; the tiny, tiny ramps on fabric that I originally though as insect bites were the knots made during the spinning.
