This listing is for a vintage, formal, Japanese kimono called a tomesode (sometimes called kurosode or "Mother of the Bride" kimono), which are typically reserved for very formal occasions, such as weddings or performances. There are always at least three - but usually five - family crests on the upper section (one at the neck, one on the back of each sleeve, and one on each side of the collar) and an elegant design that stretches across the entire hemline, with more of the image in the front, where it would be seen best.

This tomesode features a lively floral bouquet with spider mums completely embroidered in gold, along with other blossoms in orange tones. Blue and green leaves add accent colors on a robin's egg blue background.

The cascading floral pattern extends into the lining on the left side, but you'll laso find several single blossoms floating along the skirt section of the lining. A nice surprise!

There is a very light blemish at the mid-back - see last photo - but other otherwise it is in excellent condition.

The family crest is ivy.
