Men's Formal Haori Auspicious Gourd and Waterfall

MENS HAORI #415 - $320.00

 

This formal men's haori is probably from the early 1900s. The haori is made from fine silk and the lining of the haori is depicted with a rare and dynamic design of a large gourd (an auspicious item) surrounded by a natural setting with a large waterfall on the left hand. There are two bundled twigs(?) on the center (we are sorry that we are not certain about this symbolism) and large trees are surrounding the entire scene. The dominant colors you will find on this haori are silvery-mat-gold, mat gold, metallic pumpkin orange, gray-silver, and taupe. There are five family crests (“hanabishi, a diamond-shape flower). The haori is in excellent condition.
