Description

This silk wedding kimono (uchikake) has long sleeves (furisode). It was made by the company Hayashi Kimono, whose name and logo are on a paper tag attached to the garment. It has a cream-colored background with a textured pattern of birds (perhaps cranes or pheasants) and an embroidered pheasant and floral design. The pheasants are gold with silver, yellow, orange, pink, and black embellishments, and are depicted in flight. The flowers have full blossoms, which may represent peonies. The kimono has a coral red lining that fell out of fashion in the 1950s, suggesting that this kimono likely predates that time.
