For your consideration is this unusual spring cherry blossom motif powder blue kimono, embroidered entirely by hand on this magnificent vintage 40's furisode. It is rare to find a kimono entirely embroidered, the usual technique is resist dye and hand painting with embroidered accents. This one is entirely covered in embroidery. It is magnificent. It is in very good condition with some discoloration and foxing to the blue color, the embroidered areas are perfect. There is one minor threadbare area at the neckline, otherwise, excellent interior.
