This is a women’s chirimen (crepe) silk kimono which has a soft and smooth touch in a good quality of silk with gorgeous flower and tatewaku (waving lines) motif in smart dark navy blue. It has a hiro-eri (wide lapel). The lining is red silk, typical of the Taisho Era. The lining of the top part is in red silk and the bottom part is in lavender silk. Venus Rising is a really elegant and attractive antique piece.
It has certain wear and marks in the lining but as a whole, it is in pretty good condition for the age. Please check the detail photos and the 'Extra Images'.
Note: This kimono does not come with a belt. If you would like one, please check my casual obi collection on casual-obi-belt.html. Prices start from £7 or £8 for a belt.
