1930s Deer & Rooster Silk Under Kimono

This under kimono is mind boggling. It looks so sixties and yet it was produced in the late thirties, maybe early forties. I have the honor of helping a long term kimono collector de-accesion her collection and some of the piece I have and will be getting are exceptional and quite rare - like this one! This piece was made for the Japanese market, not for the tourist trade and is actually an under kimono. These are unusual to find in the Western market and the pattern is quite unusual.† It is hand silk screen printed with the most stunning of designs, The main body almost has a stylized British flag feel to it don't you agree? And the sleeves and edgings are amazing - stately and massive trees with deer and roosters abound. The fabric and hand print technique used make this very collectible and rare. It's finished by hand and remarkably light weight - parts of it have a light padded feel to it. The colors are vivid and true and it really is unique - I have never seen another like it!† Truly fabulous! Item# C99
