This furisode (long-sleeved/"swinging sleeves") silk kimono is intended for a young, unmarried woman to wear to a coming-of-age celebration or other special occasion. It is made of ivory silk with a pattern woven into the fabric and a batik-like floral decoration. There is a background of vines and branching leaves in brick red with chrysanthemums, peonies, and plum or cherry blossoms in a blue, black, and gold color scheme (the flowers represent the four seasons). There is some basting in the hems of the sleeves and along the bottom edge, possibly from a dry cleaner. The kimono has an ivory silk lining and is a suspected gift to BCM from the late 1970s/early 1980s to celebrate the donation of The Japanese House.
