Handpainted Zuan Design (2)
Handpainted kimono design or zuan. 40cm x 66cm . This is an original design for a formal black kuro tomosode silk kimono, usually worn by married female family members at weddings. It has a traditional fan design and is on quite heavy paper. It's been a working design and has some pencil annotations and creases and one bottom corner has been cut off. One part has been crossed out with a marker pen which makes me think that it is probably not all that old and has at least been used after around the 1960's. There is a fine gold line down the middle which I think is the line of the back seam. Beautiful - and interesting!
