Traditional motifs for kurotomesode

$ 95.00
This mid 20th century handpainted design is for a formal black 'kurotomesode' kimono usually worn at weddings by my married female family members. They're sometimes also worn by geisha.
This measures 38cm x 64cm. It has a large crease, a small tear and some maker's pencil marks - the character of a working design.   The gold line left of centre possibly marks the seamline of the finished kimono.
