Child's Cotton Kimono, Resist-Dyed and Hand Painted Pine and Crane Motif

275.00

This is a beautiful antique cotton child's kimono with hand dyed motifs of crane and pine. 

For the Japanese, the craneor tsuruis considered a national treasure, appearing in art, literature, and folklore. The crane is regarded as a symbol of good fortune and longevity because of its fabled lifespan of one thousand years. 

Similarly, the pine is associated with virtue, a motif of winter, and New Year. It stands to reason that these symbols would be incorporated into a child's kimono, wishing the wearer good fortune and long life. 

Early to mid 1900's 
Dimensions: 38 x 39in; 96.5 x 99cm
