Kinsha silk kimono with ditsy floral motifs in red, gold and cream with a cream linen collar and plain part silk, part cotton lining in all but the sleeves.
Smaller patterns were more common in the late 19th century, although the vibrant hues of this robe indicate it may come from the first part of the 20th century. The flowers are not immediately identifiable, they are possibly Camellias, or Peonies, though these appear as a stylised form of daisy.
Ideal for lounging around during lockdown, kimonos make stylish dressing gowns. Their exquisite fabrics and textile designs mean they are also wearable works of art, perfect for when galleries and museums reopen and arty events recommence, or as decorative artworks for the home.
One size 8-16. 55 inches/140 cm long. Very good vintage condition. Tie belt not included.
