This beautiful pure silk satin (Rinzu) Furisode Kimono dates to the 1980's.
Fashioned from Rinzu (silk/satin) in a stunning Deep Cream and Buttercup yellow with a self pattern (jacquard) of clouds, it is decorated with simply amazing hand painted and embroidered Peacocks with fantastic tails.
Painted in gold and several shades of green and orange, all outlined and enhanced with gold and silver metallic threads, against a deep cream and buttercup yellow ground, it is a really amazing visual treat.
The Furisode style of kimono features the very deep sleeve length and is the most formal of all kimono and traditionally worn exclusively by un-married Japanese ladies.
The pale cream shading to deep cream then pale gold silk crepe lining is in wonderful Vintage condition.
The beautiful soft silk satin has a glorious sheen and very soft and silky feel and is also in very good condition.
The original tiny hand tacking stitches are still in place and I don't believe it has ever been worn.
Traditionally kimono have no sizing but the Entire width (sleeve-tip to sleeve-tip) is 50", the Width (shoulder to shoulder) is 24". Length is 61" and the stunningly deep sleeves fall 41".
The kimono would feel really luxurious to wear, but would also look fab hung on a wall, and has not been dry cleaned.
