Vintage Clothing and Kimonos are not sized the same as modern manufactured clothing. Everything sold by ThisBlueBird will include actual garment measurements in inches. When choosing an item please refer to the measurements and compare them with a similar style garment you already own. Please note the measurements are actual garment measurements and you must leave 2 to 3 inches between your actual measurements and the garment for ease of movement.

Gorgeous antique silk kimono from 1910 to 1920. Made of the most beautiful blue ombre dyed silk and heavily embroidered with pink flowers and a large peacock design. The entire kimono is padded with spun raw silk between a layer of gossamer-fine ivory silk lining. The hem is fully padded. It includes a matching silk obi sash with long fringe and floral embroidery.
The kimono and obi set is nearly in perfect condition considering it is 100 years old. There are a few tiny spots, one small area of light fading at the hem and a line at the sleeve seam where it was stored folded. A little hand stitching can be seen at the shoulders. See the last photo for these.
✥ This kimono is truly deserving of display and would be excellent for a collector or a museum.
✥ It has been professionally dry cleaned and is ready for display.
✥ It is wearable, although recommend for special occasions or short periods. I would not suggest this kimono for a daily lounging robe.
