Notes

Based on style, color, etc., this kimono is believed to be an example of a mid-20th century wedding uchikake. The lack of a family or house mon or crest suggests that it is intended for non-noble families who may not have been able to commission custom embroidered pieces for a wedding. The original 1960s price tag states that purchaser at that time paid 116 yen, although price is preceded by symbol which may be a "multiply by (x)" notation.
