Taisho Era Vivid Blue Ume Ex-Furisode Now Houmongi
Description: Antique blue awase hitotsu-mon furisode kimono with bold eye-catching ume blossom. Silk is pin striped with gold and silver threads, some areas of design are embroidered.
This furisode has had its sleeves shortened and unfortunately trimmed off. I wonder what this would have looked like in all its swinging sleeves glory?
Season: Late Winter
Technique: Yuzen and embroidery
Age: 1910/20s (Taisho)
