Man's hand-painted formal montsuki haori in a deep green and black. The coat is actually made to wear the hand painted design inside. The outside is solid black with 5 white monsuki , two on the front and three on the back. The hand painted design features a Samurai reporting to a group of 5 officials. There is stitching on one side of one sleeve that may be either the artist or where the item was stored in a wardrobe. It is all 100% silk, beautifully constructed and is fully reversible. There is some staining on the green silk, primarily on the sleeves, a fade line on the bottom of the black back of the coat, and a small stain on one of the montsuki. If I have not pictured the stains well enough, please email me for more photos. This is a remarkable piece that would look fantastic on a man or a woman. It is a phenomenal piece!
