Appears to be all hand stitched… so I’m guessing this is pre-war. It does have a few little marks here and there and I have never attempted to clean it. I bought it twenty years ago from a Japanese lady who was importing them by the crate.
A striking evening jacket in excellent condition despite its age. It has been in the family for years, worn only a handful of times and professionally cleaned. - This jacket was handmade of silk in Japan in the very early 50's and was given to my mother as a wedding gift.
