Vintage Japanese UCHIKAKE Silk Wedding Kimono-Breathtaking
Consigning a group of Japanese kimonos for a local collector. Please see my other listings. Offered here is an absolutely breathtaking vintage uchikake--Japanese for wedding kimono, near 6 feet long with heavily padded hem, worn as a coat trailing along the floor. It is made in white rinzu (silk satin damask), less heavy than the traditional brocade. The roundels and the wave pattern are painted entirely by hand (the technique is called "yuzen"), with such precision of execution. The color palette is quite unusual and highly sophisticated. Embroidery is also incorporated--especially the gold threaded outlines--to further accent the already elaborate designs. This, is a work of art! 100% silk shell in rinzu. Bottom portion in rinzu dyed red.

2 minor stains on shell (last 2 photos). Ships to US, Canada, and Europe. The item "Vintage Japanese UCHIKAKE Silk Wedding Kimono-Breathtaking" is in sale since Friday, March 15, 2013. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Cultures & Ethnicities\Asian\1900-Now\Japanese\Kimonos".
