1900 - 1918 Vintage Silk Kimono Robe Juban
This is a very old, pre-WWI silk kimono nagajuban from between 1900 and 1918. It is made of bright red-orange silk that is rinzu-woven with an abstract leaf pattern. It is covered with white traditional Mons crests of flowers, waves and butterflies. It is accented with hand block-printed metallic gold squares. It has very long sleeves. There is a white cotton muslin collar and there is no haneri collar attached. It is lined in silk and has a silk padded hemline.
It is in very good condition structurally but shows a fair number of smudges throughout, on the collar and along the hem, examples of this are shown in the 4th photo.
