I wore this short vintage black Haori Urushi Lame kimono in spring, summer and fall as a jacket / blazer and summer cover-up. Stripped black silk with gold and silver flower / floral stitching and white chrysanthemum satin lining and fabric tie. In excellent vintage condition with minor stains on the white lining which may come out with a cleaning (see last few photos) please ask questions before purchase. Great selection of Vintage Clothes and some beautiful Mid Century Jewelry or Vintage Mexican Jewelry to go with them!
SIZE APPROX: The length is 30 inches long and the arm spread is 50 inches
CONDITION: Is excellent with age-appropriate wear, which may include slight color variation or bleed on vintage and antique hand-dyed kimono textiles, light soil and/or discreet marks from use, and basting stitch (or the remnants of a basting stitch) may be found along the garments' edges—some kimono cleaners apply this stitch to hold the garment neatly in storage, it is easily removed.
As with all used items, please expect the normal wear that is the hallmark and authentication or preowned vintage and antique clothing. Sizes are approximate. Our opinion regarding era, age, genre, style, material, medium, maker, technique, color, condition, origin, history, etc., may differ from yours and is offered without guarantee.
Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
Downsizing was inevitable and I've done it several times already. This is the big one, and I am still unboxing treasures retrieved from storage after decades.
All pieces are one of a kind handpicked by yours truly over 40 years to add texture, style and story to your authentic style.
My collecting story starts after watching Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor as a young girl, I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new.
Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
