From the Nippon Baseball Kimono Collection, an important archive of baseball and other sports-themed kimonos recently discovered in Japan and exported to the United States. Compiled over many decades, they are the finest we have seen. Beautiful kimono that features images of numerous baseball bats, and baseballs, both in lines. The kimono also has small images of playing cards. Most of the kimono is blue, white and gray, but the sleeves burst forth with floral designs in red, and pink and the ends of the sleeves are green. A woman's kimono, regular size. Has a wonderful, petite belt (obi). Good condition.
