This silk furisode (literally "swinging sleeves," a long-sleeved kimono) is for a young, unmarried woman to be worn for a coming-of-age celebration or other special occasion. The kimono has an ivory background and features nature and landscape scenes: flowers, water, rocks/mountains, a house/shed, chrysanthemums, Japanese maple leaves, peonies, pine branches, and susuki grass. These patterns are in blue, coral/red, gold, olive green, black, silver, and white. There is a geometric and floral pattern at neckline and bottom hem. There is an ivory silk lining with a colored bottom edge and inner of arm hems. The kimono has a yuzen-style design and paste-resist dye method, a style that dates to the 17th century in imitation of aristocratic brocade patterns. This kimono is a suspected gift to BCM from the late 1970s/early 1980s to celebrate the donation of The Japanese House.
