This stunning late 1940s to very early 1950s Japanese kimono robe is made from luscious black silk with a soft and crisp white lining for comfort and structure. A gorgeous draped fit with wide shoulders and an open fit, falling down to just above the ankle. This kimono dressing gown closes with a long matching sash tie but would certainly look gorgeous left open as a boho chic duster as well. Stunning and elaborate silk embroidered flowers completely adorn the robe, with bright sprigs and flowers on each side of the bodice and long 17" sleeves. The back has beautiful floral embroidery extending from the nape of the neck down to below the derriere. An exquisite WWII souvenir that was lovingly preserved and cared for!
CONDITION - Excellent: no holes or rips, no significant stains. The white lining has some very faint marks from age that I have tried to photograph. See last photo.
