SOLD Antique Japanese Kimono Men's Juban MJ30.

Pattern: Dyed pattern of geometric shapes with scenery on a ground of small checks. Blue liner feels like a silk/cotton blend but may be all silk.  The color is best represented by the first picture, top left. 
Comments: A couple of small spots that are not very noticeable and will most likely come out with cleaning if they bother you. Nice lined jubans are getting harder to come by; most of them are hitoe here lately. This one is around 30 years old.

SOLD Antique Japanese Kimono Men's Silk Shibori Juban MJ29

Pattern: Wonderful shibori of different sizes and types on the Tsumugi silk ground. I believe the circular patterns are Genji Wheel. The silk of the liner is slightly different in texture from the shell; it feels like it COULD be hand loomed silk, but that is just the feeling I get from it, I have no concrete evidence to substantiate my opinion. Notice at the bottom there are finished side slits; this is something I've only seen once before. I don't know if it means anything or not, but thought it was worth a mention!
Comments: A couple of small vague stains on the shell at the bottom; not noticeable. Also some insignificant stains in the lining; the collar is stained and this will most likely come out with cleaning. This one has the atmosphere of considerable age; the garment is completely sound and wearable and I think the feeling of age results from the color, which is an off-black that seems charcoal brown in some lighting. That color tone is most often found in black silks from the Taisho Period or possibly late Meiji, but I think this one is probably late Taisho or early Showa.

Condition: Vintage Excellent
Color: Off Black, Black/Brown
•Length: 54 1/4"
•Width: 51"

Antique Japanese Kimono Men's Grey Silk Shibori Juban MJ28

Pattern: This appears to be a bluish grey shibori pattern on a black ground, making the garment appear to be a dark grey at a distance. There is an additional pattern of cloud shapes with suggestions of boat sails, blossoms and other things so vague as to escape me. I find the shibori patterning to be extremely unusual and cannot say how it was accomplished.
Comments: Shitsuke present on sleeves. All around excellent condition and the date eri is clean. Nice contrasting silk liner; this is a very beautiful and unique garment.

•Sleeve: 19 1/4"
•Shoulder: 25 1/2" 

Antique Japanese Men's Kimono Juban, Blue, MJ27.

Pattern: This is called "The March of Daimyo" or something very similar to that. The varied forms of shibori are an excellent backdrop to this main focal point. Interestingly, the pattern on the back flows from the left side of the body all the way across the back of the right sleeve, rather like a woman's houmongi kimono; very unusual. Also, it should be noticed how the shibori pattern matches up so well at the seams where the body of the juban connects to the sleeves.
Comments: Very nice silk Juban with excellent touch and flow. A few tiny spots, not very noticeable and would likely come out with dry cleaning if they bother you. In the picture where I am pointing out the small mark on the silk, the dark circular area is a shadow from my pressing against the fabric; it is not a stain. The liner is a complimentary shade of blue silk, giving the Juban nice weight, but it is still wearable for all seasons.
