This delightful diminutive silk kimono is decorated in brilliant colors, depicting cranes and other auspicious symbols of good luck to be conferred on the child who wore it. Early Showa period. The kimono is hand sewn and fully lined in white cotton which provides a lovely quilted effect. Background checkered panels, primarily in shades of royal blue and tan, serve as the backdrop to red-headed cranes in flight.

The crane is one of the most popular and frequently depicted symbols of longevity, and its grace and natural beauty make it particularly well suited for portrayal in Japanese art. Motifs of pine boughs are also featured in the background. The crane is often shown with the pine tree to symbolize a flourishing and prosperous life.

Another auspicious symbol decorating the kimono is the mallet of Daikoku, the Shinto god of wealth who is one of the Seven Gods of Good Luck. He is usually represented sitting on rice bales and holding a mallet (tsuchi”) with which he can grant the wishes of his worshippers. A stroke of his mallet is said to confer wealth. This lovely little piece of textile art makes a wonderful wall hanging.

CONDITION is excellent.

DIMENSIONS: 32” (81.4 cm) long, 27” (68.5 cm) wide at sleeves.
