This fine kinsha (fine crepe) silk formal light jacket presents a distinctive feature: its inside showcases a painted stormy cloud scene with an emerging dragon. Adorned with five family crests (mon), indicating its use as a formal haori for significant occasions, this particular piece is unique. It resembles the rare gauze weave "muso" haori, but it's crafted from chirimen (crepe) material, not the typical summer gauze. The artwork's exceptional quality spans the entire back and front of the inside, including the sleeves.
Its measurements are approximately 50 inches from sleeve-end to sleeve-end and 32 inches in height, or about 127 centimeters by 81 centimeters.
