Code: 10182

A Vintage Japanese Purple Silk Kimono / Furisode, circa 1930, decorated with a multi-coloured design of fan shaped floral panels joined by scrolling ribbons, Fully lined in red and cream silk. 

This example has a long tie at the back that is brought across the front to hold it in place under the bust.  
The furisobe (translates as 'swinging sleeves') is a formal type of kimono worn by young unmarried women, usually worn for a special occasion such as the tea ceremony or weddings.   They are generally of smooth, brightly coloured silk and the sleeves are attached to the body of the kimono only for a short distance, the inner edge is open, allowing the lining to show on the inner edge.
