This is a women's silk kimono which has a soft and smooth touch in good quality silk with a classic floral pattern of botan (peony), tsubaki (camellia) and ume (plum) and phoenix design.
It has a refining classic jacquard design of Japanese traditional patterns called sayagata (gossamer-figured pattern). The lining of the top main part is in red silk and bottom part is in coral pink silk. Secret Dancer is an enchanting antique piece.

The kimono has a mon (family crests) in nape. The symbol of the mon is sagari fuji mon (wistaria-flower). It has a bachi-eri (folded lapel).

This kimono is quite long. Please check the measurement. You may need to have a bit of tuck at your waist with this length of kimono unless you are very tall. You can adjust the length by using a koshihimo (a cord tied around the waist of a womans kimono to hold it in place). Koshihimo is available for £4. Please ask for more details.

It has certain wear and some flaws including a 1cm tear on the top of the left back sleeve and some marks. Please check the detail photos and the 'Extra Images'.
