Women’s kimono decorated with pheasants and autumn plants
|Caption||Married women wore kimonos with narrower sleeves. The kurotomesode was their most formal item of clothing. It is always plain black with decoration confined to the base, in this instance a pair of pheasants among autumn plants. Made of thin, loosely woven silk, for wear on warm days in late summer, its autumnal decoration anticipated the coming season. Origin: Japan. Date: 1920 – 1940. Object ID: AK-RAK-2009-3-12.|
