WK41 Antique Kimono Komon, Pink & Green Blocks.

This is a pretty piece, cheerful and busy, but with an odd sort of dignity too.  Peach colored hakake below white doura, the kimono is over all in good shape.  It measures wrist to wrist 49", body width 21 1/2" sleeve drop 19 1/2", length 60".  It is $65.00.   

SOLD WK40 Antique Kimono Dark Blue With Kanji.

Actually a stage costume, this kimono is synthetic fabric with a wonderful touch and unusual texture which I tried to capture in the pictures second row right and third row both right and left.  They symbols are those for 'day' and 'literacy.'  This one borders on the houmongi category, as the pattern crosses the side seam at the hemline of the garment, shown in the picture bottom row left.  White doura and steely blue hakake blend well with the shell and make this a quiet dignified garment that still has some sparkle due to the gold spray.  Excellent condition, it measures wrist to wrist 48". body width 24 1/2", sleeve drop 19 1/2", length 63".  It is $85.00.
