Vintage Japanese Boy's Kimono with Sea Bream and Waves

130.00

This is a cotton boy's kimono with elaborately dyed waves and a brilliant red sea bream, or porgy. 

This child's kimono, which dates back to the early Showa period, was worn at festivals. The porgy leaping out of the waters is a symbol of good luck.  There are also japanese mon, or family crests, dyed on the front and back of the garment. These particular mon represent oak leaves with tendrils. 

There are stains throughout the garment, however the bold, graphic elements of the garment are clearly the focal point. 

Dimensions: 39.5 x 46.5 in
Early to mid 1900s
